When I came up with the name of this blog I had intended the pain to be a metaphorical one. Unfortunately, I’ve discovered over the last few weeks that drawing on an easel set vertically has its drawbacks. Specifically, I’m experiencing pain in my drawing arm from drawing this way. So I’ve decided to take a little break from the Bargue plates.
In the interim I thought I would do some studies from a master of figure drawing – George Bridgman. The drawings above are a few examples of his balance studies that I’ve drawn from Bridgman’s Complete Guide to Drawing from Life.
