Okay, here goes again. Here’s day 19.
Tried to post for a while with no luck. I eventually quit trying, then I got an email from NMA saying to give it another try, but I was in the process of moving and am just now able to try posting again. Hope this works.
Part of my second challenge is doing some anatomy studies. I decided to go back and look at some of the people I was told to study by instructors many years ago. I don’t think I really focused on these books at the time. I’ll try to do better this time.
Here are some studies from Stephen Rogers Peck’s “Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist.”
Well done for taking on that book! I do like the look of it. For my first anatomy book I chose our very own Steve Huston’s work which I can say is very nice indeed (of course!)
To answer your earlier question, I still haven’t resumed my art studies or commenced another 100-day challenge as the dust is still settling from my move – still many boxes around the place, to-do lists, tradespersons to call and so on. The darker winter months should provide some quieter evenings though to get settled into a routine.
Keep up your good work – I will be following with great interest.
I like those symmetry torso studies – a great 3-d feel about them there.
It’s Figure Drawing for Artists: Making Every Mark Count or I see there is a French translation if you prefer that! Dessiner le corps humain: Une leçon de maître. Ok, it doesn’t actually have anatomy in the title and it’s not really an anatomical study book per se, but it does have a lot of anatomical ideas in it.
I have that book, but I haven’t looked at it from an anatomical point of view, (probably because it doesn’t have “Anatomy” in the title!). After all these years I’m still too literal sometimes in what I use for instruction. I love how Steve teaches. I’m going to check it out this weekend from an anatomy perspective. Thanks for the suggestion!
