In jun, 2010, I attended course of French drawing. The professor asked us to make the realistic drawing of our own hand.
Learn, learn…. And to learn to draw, there’s nothing better than to draw from life. So I decided to draw my own hand.
As you know, I’m drawing lessons online, and we have to do exercises that we call DAF (Dessin à faire : Drawing to do). As of October 2009, we had to work on the human body.And for that, nothing better than the model of our teacher …
I discovered D. Kassan by looking for a video on the drawing. His Video fascinated me : we could see each of his movements in spite of a little faster video.
I am an amateur of academic and realistic drawing. I found my happiness with Mr Kassan. In fact, the other draftsmen and painters are certainly so competent as him. But he understood the interest to show his work and especially his working way. It is what I appreciate about Mr Kassan, after his work naturally!
Here we are arrived at the period of May, 2009. I continued to draw and to experiment mediums. I also continued my courses of drawings. Among these courses, there is one on the gumming.
In next articles, I shall show you my drawings of March, 2009. And to begin, here is a still life in charcoal.
Today, I am going to speak to you about Mr. Gustave Fraipont. I do not know if you heard about it…
