Master draftsman and painter Danny Galieote analyzes and breaks down a drawing on toned-paper by the master Anthony Van-Dyck. First you will see how to block in the basic rhythms and flows throughout the figure and how to get a good lay-in. Then you will begin to build upon your initial line-work with the form and structure by working across the figure and relating both sides.
