In this lesson, instructor Mike Mattesi will introduce you to the key concepts of drawing with FORCE. You will learn about the experience of force and how to control your line while drawing. Mike will share with you the different ways to set up a drawing space and the materials he uses when drawing with FORCE.
This lesson belongs to Drawing with FORCE. In this 9-week course, author and instructor Mike Mattesi will introduce you to his FORCE drawing methodology. You will learn a figure drawing process rooted in the physics of motion. Mike will go step by step from setting up your drawing space to understanding gravity’s force on the figure. You will learn key elements such as applied force, rhythm, and the leading edge; from there, improve your understanding of the figure and effectively capture it on the page. Through this course, Mike will take drawing the figure beyond just observation and introduce it in a way that relies on physicality.
Throughout this course, you’ll have access to the NMA community for feedback and critiques to improve your work as you progress.
