Drawing Fundamentals | Isabella Allis

About this class

Initially, we will focus on the fundamentals of drawing technique and then progress to explore and observe the true nature of your subject including reflections, shadows and transparency.
Developing your drawing technique will also improve the quality of your paintings.

Isabella will discuss the various materials, drawing mediums and types of paper used.

What will I learn?

The course will focus on the fundamentals of drawing (line, shape, form, space, etc.) and each class will then build on from the last. In particular, we will look at:

  • How line is used to develop eye-brain coordination and heighten observation skills.
  • How shape can be used as a tool to break down complex objects into easy-to-understand shapes as an underlying structure to your drawing.
  • Understanding the interaction of light on an object will help you to create the effect of three-dimensional form.
  • Understanding perspective and how to create the illusion of space.
  • Learn about the triangular grid method to aid with placing key points in your under-drawing.
  • Explore and observe the true nature of your subject including reflections, shadows and transparency.
  • Learn charcoal and graphite drawing techniques you can add to your artistic repertoire and apply to your personal style.
