COURSE OVERVIEW

An artist who understands artistic anatomy is free to focus on the expressive character and rhythm of their figure drawing instead of struggling to make it look like a figure! Learn simple anatomical concepts that will enable you to visualise any part of the body, in any action, from any direction, and grasp the essential action of drawing in a few lines instead of fifty. For beginning anatomists, the focus will be on the skeleton, while content is flexible for those with prior knowledge. In this workshop you will see visible improvement in your drawing skills over the course of the week.

He is the author of an extensive website on the theory and practice of colour for painters, The Dimensions of Colour.
