You may have seen how professional artists use areas of dark and contrast called “accents” to move the viewer’s eye masterfully through their drawings. In this sixth lesson in Glenn’s advanced Renaissance Figure Drawing course, Glenn will show you the logic behind the accent and how to use it in your own work. Using Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencil, Glenn will demonstrate a long-pose cross-hatched constructive figure drawing and how the accents can be applied.
