Drawings and feedback from Dr. Valérie Julie Brousseau
Here are two anatomical studies in red pencil for which my aim was to review relative anatomy and work on drawing skills and rendering shades. These are my two first experiments with red. I liked it but found it challenging: it does not forgive – just like surgery!
I based myself on an anatomy book which I knew well. But it is not the same to draw as to look: the relationships of structures become more obvious with drawing as one needs to think of exactly where everything fits on to bone etc. I shall send you more as I go along… I am hoping to try silver point soon: am just getting the material together, it is not easy… Thanks for the videos, they are great.
I have already subscribed to your Drawing Academy Course and have really enjoyed it. Which is why I could not resist trying the Anatomy one. I always dreamt of doing oils one day, as I work on my skills with your help, this day may be closer than I thought! …
