About This Drawing
To improve both drawing abilities and teaching methods, I have been studying the book “Fundamentals of Drawing” by V. A. Mogilevtsev.
I am a huge fan of the Russian Academic drawing style. The lessons within this book are clear and concise. The core values represent my own beliefs; that of seeking the beauty in what you see.
“An artistic image is a medium for carrying sensual information.
Thus, any drawing, even if done as an exercise, must not be impassive.”
I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking to further their drawing abilities. It is beautifully presented, increadibly well written and contains plenty of high quality drawings and reference images.
This master study portrait has been created by following the step-by-step instructions within the book, using HB and 4B graphite 2mm lead clutch pencils and a white chalk on toned tan Strathmore sketch paper. Please note that actual colours may vary to those you see on screen. To buy this drawing get in touch, you can find my contact details via the navigation menu above.
