Sight-Size Drawing

In this lesson, Joe Altwer will be drawing 4 different 2-hour poses using the Sight-Size methodology. You will learn how to block in a figure with straight lines, define a contour and a shadow line, develop shadow shapes, and apply values for shadows.

Academies and ateliers around the world are increasingly teaching an American realist approach to drawing and painting known as sight-size or classical realism.

Hosted by Florence Academy of Art founder Daniel Graves, this massive course is the most comprehensive breakdown of the sight-size approach ever produced online.

By the end of this course, you’ll be an expert in the approach and be ready to take on Sight-Size Painting Course, scheduled for a 2020 release.
