#WaffleWednesday – #LateStart

While I appreciate the late starts for staff meetings and the like, the shortness of time with my artists is very valuable and miss that extended time with you. Today is a STRONG day to WORK WORK WORK and get things done. Be ready to be active and WORK today.

“Inspiration is for amateurs. The rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightening to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself.” Chuck Close

Breadth Drawing – Large Scale Study of Hands and Feet – Began with Contour Drawings in charcoal. Introduce classical studies of human figures and body parts. Renaissance artists such as Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci. Refer to the Scholastic Arts Magazines on Both of the artists. Brown paper and conte crayons for the hands and feet drawings. The Hands must be holding an object and the feet must be bare and pushing on or off of something. Look at the tendons and the muscles – how does the underlying structure show through?
