Cast Drawing Double Session: Michelangelo’s Crouching Boy


I am dedicating two sessions of Cast drawing to Michelangelo’s beautiful Crouching Boy.

This beautiful piece has already been the subject of one of the first Cast Drawing sessions, where we used white paper and graphite.

This second take on the Crouching boy will be executed in charcoal and chalk on toned paper, and we will be working on it for two sessions of 2:30 hours each to develop this work completely, from measuring, blocking in the main proportions, light mass, and shadow mass to extended tonal rendering,
