Artist's Description

When learning to draw figures and things in an institution, through a book or tutoring, we come by the theory that once you learn to draw circles, triangles and squares, that you can draw anything because everything is made up of these three shapes. When I started my major project for the year, this came to mind when I tried to think of a project to begin. I wanted to take something simple, play with it’s concept and make a series. SO, here is a series of 3 drawings on canvases which are still a little under construction. Each figure is in a pose that when a drawing of which begins, an artist would most likely begin with drawing the shape! then each body part is made up of the three shapes, then the lights and darks and blending. All the things I love.
For each drawing, I used a reference photograph taken by Gillian Berry for this project :D thank you so much for the assistance Red!
chalk, charcoal and texture pain on square canvases. (not sure about the size atm. will get that tomorrow for you all) AND keep an eye on this space, these will be finished soon ready for critique in a few days.
