Selected Works by the Tutor
The purpose of academic observational drawings is similar to learning scales or studying music theory is to musicians.
Although it may be a cold and less creative process to begin with, it has many significant benefits:
Academic drawing and painting are the foundations of many forms of fine art, but they are also the foundations for a lot of commercial work. The ability to interpret from life or reference, to produce work that is consistent and accurate, that clearly demonstrates an understanding of tone, proportion, form, perspective etc is highly valued in commercial art fields. These skills can all be achieved from the long term study of objects from life, and pushing the limits of analysis and understanding until it becomes intuitive.
For the student, this may be at times a difficult and frustrating process, because it will require rewiring and training the mind, eye and hand, which are all exhausting. However, with dedication and hard work the results will be spectacular and will benefit the students in a multitude of ways. Topics covered:
