Last night students wrapped up their introduction to drawing from the figure. We started with a series of quick, exaggerated contour drawings. The objective was to intentionally distort areas of the body to draw the viewer's attention to these areas as well as "force" a foreshortened point of view. From there students continued with contour studies occasionally adding tone to create focal areas. Notice in Isabel's drawing above the heightened sense of awareness in the size and weight of the hands by employing a greater sense of line quality.
