Life Drawing with Richard Squire

Richard Squire IMG_8630demonstrated his approach to life drawing. First he establishes the overall shape enclosing the subject so that it will fit the paper. The head “oval” is then drawn to establish a basic component. The body proportions can then be related to multiples of the head height or width using  a pencil at arms length. The angles of the body and limbs can be established with an angled pencil and marked in light pencil. When the  basic shape has been established it can be compared with the subject. The detail can then be drawn without having to adjust for mistakes in the initial drawing layout.
