Cast Drawing #6: The Wrestlers
Number of Lessons: 1
6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Boys will be boys! This session of Cast drawing is dedicated to the sculptural group The Wrestlers, a Roman copy of an original Hellenistic Greek bronze, now lost.
These two young pankration athletes are locked in a jumbled mass of muscles and aesthetics, a great subject for us to practice measuring skills, tonal rendering, and drawing on toned paper with charcoal and chalk.
As an extra bonus, the muscles of these two athletes are beautifully defined and remarkably correct, so we can practice also some elements of figure anatomy.
