I have dipped into anatomy and figure drawing on and off throughout the last ten years. The trouble is if I don’t persist with it I forget almost everything I have learnt along the way. Well I am dipping in once again, remembering a few things and learning some new things. I particularly like the simple straightforward approach of the Love Life Drawing videos on youtube. I think they are aimed at beginners which is perfect because there is drawing clarity without to much of the technical stuff. By that I mean the focus is on gestural anatomy rather than any particular concern for medical anatomy, difficult names and complicated descriptions.
Today I have been drawing legs and the most important thing I have learnt is recognising the ‘S’ shape and ‘C’ shape curves of the muscles and tibia (shin bone).
