In week three, NMA master draftsman Glenn Vilppu will break down the use of spherical forms in gestures. You will learn how spherical shapes act as building blocks in your gesture drawings. Glenn will analyze Old Masters works and examine their use of spheres, followed by several demonstrations constructing the spherical forms from the figure.
