Open Drawing Sessions | The Pelvis, from Skeleton to Skin

This 2 hour, online session, explores the pelvis, starting with the skeleton and gradually building up the muscles layers and the external forms. It is very important, for the figurative artist that wants to understand the sense of movement, stability and instability of a pose, to study the pelvis, this central volume of the body from where ribcage and legs stem, and site of center of balance. In addition to the anatomical and structural art of the pelvis, we will also create a few sketches of the external forms of this part of the body to better connect anatomy with figure drawing.

Open Drawing Sessions | Drawing the Head, 3/4 view

This Open Drawing Session is dedicated to the head in 3/4 view. In previous ODS sessions we focused on the front and side view of the head, focusing on its typical proportions and proper positioning of the facial features. Drawing the head in a ¾ view will expand and refine our understanding of the volumes and proportions of the head.
