A rare chance for life drawing
Hamm's book Drawing the Head and Figure. But that book was only concerned with adult proportions. Thanks to ye olde library I have been blessed with How to Paint Living Portraits by Roberta Carter Clark. This book contains a good amount of information to inform the practice of drawing children. Since I have so many children in my life, it'd be fun to see how quickly I can learn to capture a likeness and which method ends up working best for me. Joy Thomas' method of moving from general to particular? Sanden's method of economical use of line and deliberate placement? the inverted triangle method? So much to master! As I I seek mastery, to God be the Glory! I'm Out.
