Learn to draw like Renaissance and Baroque Masters, balancing structural understanding and underlying geometry, the essential qualities to drawing the figure from both life and the imagination.
Culled from Jon deMartin's popular Drawing magazine article series, 'Figure Drawing Atelier' introduces readers to the historical atelier teaching method and expressive classical figure drawing. Through Old Master drawing examples and the author's own beautiful drawings, demonstrations and diagrams, readers will learn how to draw basic forms in perspective, model with values, draw all elements of the human figure, and much more. The instruction ranges from copying the Old Masters to the basics of human proportions and foreshortening. The result is a resource that readers will develop a classical education in expressive figure drawing.
Jon deMartin has taught life drawing and painting for over 22 years at the most prestigious Academies and ateliers in the country. He has also exhibited at galleries such as the Hirschl & Adler, John Pence gallery, Arnot Museum, The Butler Museum and the Beijing World Art Museum.
