Totally inspired by Jon Hardesty (MindCandyMan) I wanted to try to learn to draw studying the Atelier way doing bargue drawings and cast drawings with a goal to painting in oils one day. Sorry if I'm asking a stupid question, or even one that has been asked before, but I assume with the cast drawing you do need to own a cast not just copy 2d pictures like the bargue drawings? Does anyone know a UK supplier of drawing casts. I've googled for days with no luck.
If I understand correctly moving to the cast drawings, is an important step, you have to start learning to see the 3D form. I have read many articles about sight-size drawing which all sound cool until I came across more articles about the downside and pitfuls of this method and how you should use comparative method as well. One article was by Jonathan's master Hans - http://www.atelierstockholm.se/index...ntid=64&lang=1
(At least I think it is I am only on page 36 of Journey of Absolute Rookie. So sorry if I've jumped the gun.)
Phew well its making my head spin trying to understand as I've never come across either and now it all seems conflicting. Sadly the pics are missing from some of Jonathan's posts so I am finding some of them hard to follow. I wish I could afford to study with him at his Classic Art online but its not something I can afford right now. So if anyone could maybe help me trying to understand it would be great. I am very keen to have ago at these types of drawing and I apologise once again if I'm talking rubbish or have posted in the wrong forum (new to that aswell). I already understand I must draw, draw, draw and then some more, more, more.
