Degas déjà vu: Ballerinas
Number of Lessons:
6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Copying Degas’ beautiful ballerinas drawings was a lot of fun, and so many of you expressed the desire to copy some more, that I decided to offer a second drawing session dedicated to this great master of light, motion, and grace.
During this 2:30-hour session, we will copy two works by Degas: the first is a quick sketch that will permit us to warm up a bit and learn to capture the essence of a subject with a few essential strokes of graphite or charcoal.
The second work is a drawing in graphite or charcoal and white chalk on toned paper: a very basic but elegant and effective technique to capture the light and the sense of volume of this graceful subject.
