Pr3 Gesture: Ex 1 Stance


Stance – Finding the axis and balance of the figure.

I have used figure photos from the book Anatomy for the Artist by Sarah Simblet. I will also be very aware of stance again at next life class when the figure is standing.

I checked my proportions on completion of drawings using the 7 half head scale. There not to bad.

Underneath I made a few contour studies identifying shapes with the balance on the axis in mind.

  1. I like these, I just discovered George W. Bridgman, they remind me of some of his drawings, very natural stances

    • Hi Marco
      I just got the book, complete life drawing by Bridgman. I haven’t made a start drawing the box style figures he creates yet but do intend to. Just looking at them must have filtered in to the drawing.
      So much to get to grips with with the figure.
