Event details

In this workshop Francesco will explain how to accurately control proportions, a foundational aspect of any academic drawing.  In the morning the subject will be a still life consisting of several symmetrical objects. In the afternoon we will apply the notions learned with the life model.

We will cover concepts such as sighting, clocking the angles, using vertical, horizontal and diagonal references to organize the drawing.
