When it comes to my work, I nearly always become lost in the details entirely too soon…missing the forest for the trees, if you will.
In an effort to break this poor habit, I enrolled in Bargue’s Cours de Dessin at The Drawing Studio in Dublin.
Though I’ve hardly scratched the surface of this course, I have already noticed a change in the way I observe my subject matter.
Here are 3 things I’ve learned from the course:
1. Think abstractly to reproduce an accurate, realistic representation of the subject.
2. Review and stand back constantly to make small adjustments that will impact the whole picture.
3. Create balance in the drawing by not focusing on one area for too long.
