What is the difference between a well-done drawing of a pair of knees and a drawing of knees that look like bags full of nuts?

Knowing what’s inside!

In this session, we will study the internal structure, anatomy and external forms of the knee in various poses and movement.
After this session, your drawings of knees will have all the bumps in the right places!
