We are working on skeletons and draped figures in drawing class. Working from printed handouts of master works, using charcoal. Messy but satisfying. I especially like drawing with the kneaded eraser– creating highlights by removing charcoal. The creepy skeleton is copied from an 18th century engraving by Jan Wandelaar. Not sure who did the upper left draped figures (top photo), but I’ll find out. You should be having this much fun!
I have to disagree–the skeleton looks very jolly; as if he’s about to burst into a soft-shoe dance.
Haha, maybe you are right!
Just excellent! Thanks!
