GETTING A HANDLE ON PROPORTION & FORESHORTEING is the fifth in a series of eight classical life drawing video workshops. This video lesson explores techniques to “see” and “render” the figure in proportion, using positive and negative shapes, plumb lines, pinch, jigsaw, and other techniques to describe difficult or complex poses.

PROPORTION & FORESHORTENING provides both female and male nude models posing in real-time for maximum viewer participation.

This video approximates a live classroom situation, and includes split-screen demos and examples of student work at different levels.

PROPORTION & FORESHORTENING incorporates the use of plumb, level and sight lines, negative shapes, jigsaw and pinch techniques.

Materials needed for PROPORTION & FORESHORTENING

  • Newsprint pad or any medium to smooth paper

  • Vine charcoal or any charcoal, crayon or pencil
