I Aint’n’t Dead!
Veeeeeeerrry briefly – I started a course at Schoolism.com and it’s been an eye opener. I wish i had done it years ago as just concentrating on one thing at a time is really working for me. I haven’t been idle all this time but trying different things and generally getting confused about it all. It was clear to me that i needed some formal tuition.
The first class was on learning to see and drawing through shapes to create form. Marshall Vandruff’s work is a really good example of this sort of thing. The second class is on Value and constructing value scales. From there, the homework is making a drawing and getting the value right by using different percentages of black. At the time i write this, i’m still drawing the form of the picture so i’ll update class one and class two when i’ve finished.
