1st year studies at The Atelier

After completing several charcoal drawings of plaster cast eyes, noses or ears, students progress to more complex plaster cast drawings in charcoal. This is a great time for learning about shapes, values and edges. No paintings are completed during our first year of study at The Atelier.
Charcoal drawing of a plaster cast hand and coin that I completed in 2007.

Here is a photo of a typical set up. My charcoal drawing is set up immediately next to the statue in order to see shadows and shapes accurately, using the 'sight-size' method. (2007).
