In week two, instructor Renae Wang will guide you through the fundamentals of drawing geometric forms. The focus will be on utilizing a plumb line technique to ensure the precise construction of objects. Following this, you will learn to analyze each contour drawing by incorporating cross contours, which will aid in the development of three-dimensional shapes. Finally, Renae will demonstrate how to construct and enhance a still-life contour drawing using comparative measuring.
