Take control of designing the figure with Polly Hammett. From the original contour drawing to the final touches, Polly shows you how a few changes can dramatically impact your end result.
She has specific goals for each stage of her creative process. During the initial contour drawing, Polly learns her model's mannerisms and unique characteristics. She designs her painting to capture personality.
In stage two, Polly thinks ofher subject as shapes. You learn to organize and meaningful value patterns, shifting warm and cool colors, drawing attention to specific areas of the painting. You'll learn how distance from your subject alters psychological impact on the viewer.
