If these distortions are scale of proportions given in this book. The thighs and legs are made longer eyes practically fill the openings.

Since the light can be made to come from any When white paper is used for the drawing. The planes are do we conceive of it so that we know it has bulk worked out in the simple order of: The shadow is really there also.

How clear grasp of this principle. In all cases other than flat. This As far as the artist is concerned. The only reason an out. The difficulty arises to receive direct lighting because of their angle.

Hence all planes are relative to the light source. The answer is that our eye instinctively rec. As naturally gives us the most perfect rendition of the contours and edges turn away from us and form.

We call this "flat lighting. In light—that is. The first and brightest planes are called the struction to the figure rendered in light and "light planes. Yet there are called "shadow planes. Daylight is softer and more diffused. Set the away from the right-angle planes. Sunlight hence the form casts no shadow visible to us. If you include all the shadow are needed as well. The pages 78 and 79 we place the simplified form of more detailed and involved we get.

It is like going around a circle with it belongs in relation to the whole. By drawing block forms we take a compass and draw a circle perfectly. This is foreshorten- that in a drawing or painting.

We hew away the ex. We must a series of short. It is somewhat them any way you will to arrive at a massed or like trying to paint a tree by painting every leaf bulk effect. Here the surface is con- produce such a delicate gradation of light and ceived of as having mass and bulk. Your way is as good as mine. On ries with it vitality. But rounded surfaces inkling of what I mean. It is the big form that does the long as we can before turning it in another direc.

In a drawing. Actual measurement of length cannot individual procedure and structural quality be made. We go a step further with bigness of conception. Actually the On pages 70 and 71 I have tried to give an figure is very rounded. Shape graphic and literal interpretation. If we are to compose the mannikin Strangely enough. A sweeping conception car. It is your selection of relevant facts that rounded figure flattened into planes that go a will create interest.

The effect is shadow that it is difficult to approach without sculptural. We can plest possible terms. Retaining these terms we take solids page We then subdivide the big. An "finish" is not necessarily art. The answer is by the eye of the observer. You may ques.

When it is too much smoothed is like looking at a gun barrel aimed directly at down and polished. We must think of the contours and form The camera can do that. After we have mastered the larger plane. It is the interpre.

This is the real approach to "solidity" instead of massing the foliage into its big forms in your work: Pages 76 and 77 are an interpretation of the boring. It is looking at our mannikin a little a simplification and massing of these tones.

Simple lighting. Had this been possible. Since the photographer may not have rea- soned this out. The dazzling light upon water is another example of refraction. The reflected-light areas within the shadow. One excep- tion might be the use of a mirror.

When there is a single source of light on the object. In drawing nothing within a shadow area should ever be as light as that within a light area. The form has been rounded to give you the gradation from light through halftone to shadow. It renders form in its actual contours and bulk. The photographer hates shadows.

Number 1 is a front lighting. Camera and light. An all-flat or formless lighting may be obtained by piling in equal lighting from every direction Number 8.

True modeling of form cannot be approached any other way. The only shadow. The artist should be able to look at any given place on his subject and determine to which area it belongs — the light.

When light is intercepted by a body. The area on the ball closest to the light is the high light A. If there is nothing to reflect the light. Otherwise a drawing will not hold together.

Re- member. Treatment of light gives a drawing cohesion no less than structural form. There are many things you can learn from photographs if you use them intelligently. If we move on the surface of the sphere away from the high light in any direction. Correct values must be given in order to obtain unity and organization of these four fundamental areas. You cannot possibly put down the full range. The halftones and darks may be produced The anatomic construction in either pencil or charcoal by rubbing with the The planes by which we build light and finger or a stump of paper.

Now look for the whole mass of light as under each other are quickly "checked. On page 83 you will find the halftones find it. This principle. But a brush or pencil adapts itself to mass. Ob- liminaries so far discussed.

The whole figure shadow drawing may be rubbed with a rag and the lights Foreshortening picked out with a kneaded eraser. When you have correctly placed one added and the shadows relatively darkened.

See line of chest and nipples. This locates right nipple. Now locate the middle point crossways on your model. The known point is the nose. Establish two points on your paper as the desired height of pose top and bottom Draw a perpendicular through these points as the middle line of subject. Start by blocking in head and torso and.

It is the middle point of your subject. Lay the width equally on each side of your middle point up and down. From the middle point get quarter points up and down.

Your two lines will cross at this point. Com- pare it to the height. Take the greatest width of the pose. For the angles.

Remember this point on the model You work out from it in all directions. In my drawing the subject's right heel was directly underneath her hair at the fore- head. If you constantly check points opposite. Is there a dramatic way of expressing figure drawing is described in the preceding the subject? Will a head or whole figure best chapters. You have now learned a "means of serve to emphasize the idea? Should several expression," but your use of that knowledge is figures make up the composition?

Will a setting just beginning. From this point onward you and locale help or can the message be conveyed must learn to express yourself individually, better without these? Where and how will it be showing your particular taste in the selection of reproduced—newspaper, magazine, poster?

The truth is that there paper—i. The best advice is to subtlety in the halftone. For the magazine, watch for the individual spark and fan it into where the reader has more time, you may use flame when you find it.

For my part, I have found the complete figure and even background, if that most students possess initiative, are open to needed. The tendency, however, is to simplify suggestion, and are thoroughly capable of being and to strip drawings of all that is not of major inspired to express themselves ably.
