Class notes from Drawing the Figure in Space with Elizabeth Rupprecht, SAIC, 1991
Draw from center out. Work from bottom up, never top down.
Like riding a bike uphill.
Crunching up the space, like using your muscles. All this space to work with. Swooping down.
2D & 3D working together.
Books – Henry Moore, National Gallery, Sharaku.
Split planes, like Cezanne’s still lifes.
in & up (compressed); out & down.
Holbein for eyes & mouth.
