Open Drawing Sessions | The Pelvis, from Skeleton to Skin
This 2 hour, online session, explores the pelvis, starting with the skeleton and gradually building up the muscles layers and the external forms.
It is very important, for the figurative artist that wants to understand the sense of movement, stability and instability of a pose, to study the pelvis, this central volume of the body from where ribcage and legs stem, and site of center of balance.
In addition to the anatomical and structural art of the pelvis, we will also create a few sketches of the external forms of this part of the body to better connect anatomy with figure drawing.
Drawing paper of your choice, but it is best to avoid newsprint paper. Strathmore or Canson Drawing paper are a good all-around choice.
Colored pencils in red earth, blue, black or brown; graphite pencils in HB or 2B gradation. Colored pencils are very useful to differentiate the various parts of the pelvis.
Eraser and pencil sharpener
