Sight-Size Drawing

This lesson is the 7-hour demo of drawing a plaster cast with charcoal. You will learn how to block in the drawing with the help of a mirror and a plumb line, how to define shadow and light shapes and turn them into forms. Leo will also go over 9-step value theory and “keying the drawing” process.

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.
