On average we do roughly 20 pieces per 3-hour session in this class, but I will only be posting about half of the drawings from each session. This is part one of my first paper pad (100 sheets), and the first of probably 3 posts for this pad.
Our focus in these sessions was creating armatures, using the “cone” formula, and various methods of mark-making to create volume. We start with 5-10 3-to-5 minute gesture warmups, followed by two or three longer 10-15 minute drawings where we’re to try the methods shown to us, and usually end the class with two 15-20 minute “freestyle” pieces (using whatever methods we want).
So without further adieu, the semester’s first two models.
