We love the economy of detail in this portrait drawing of Jimmy Corsini by Edward Hopper (1882-1967). And the ace little sketch to get the tilt right in the background. If you'd like to learn how to prioritise information in your work, check out our next Portrait Drawing Masterclass with Sofia Welch, 21st-25th January 2019 #portraitdrawing #portrait #drawingtbt #hopper #americanpainter #realist #realism #thewholeansweristhereonthecanvas https://buff.ly/2EgZLMO

Albert Edelfelt also approached drawing by stating the big shapes expressed in simple straight lines first. In this study, we see correction of the big shapes between 1 and 2. Interestingly and crucially though, although 2 has none of the added texture and detailed modelling of 3, it still have the same character and likeness as the big shapes are the same. No amount of detail will save a drawing from poorly observed proportions. #tutorialtuesday #drawing #proportions #edelfelt Our next Portrait Drawing Masterclass takes place in London 21st-25th January. Spaces still available.

In this 'Portrait of Marie Henneburg' Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) expressively uses contrast to create an intense focal point. Final reminder for our last AMC Sunday life drawing of 2018, a model-led session in tribute to Gustav Klimt on the 16th December. Not to be missed! #mastermonday #lifedrawing #klimt #booknow #jointherevolution

A common beginner's mistake is to work on the details too early, particularly by using curves immediately. Shapes become overly generic (as seen in fig. 1). Bargue gives us an excellent solution: start with straight lines, finding the major ‘angle breaks’ of a shape. Having established these we can then find the more minor angle breaks, and from there the particulars of any curves (fig. 2) #tutorialtuesday #shapes #lines #curves #learntodraw #drawing #charlesbargue #barguecopies #bargue #atelier

In this gorgeous pastel drawing of Maria Osipovna Lowenfield, Ilyra Repin (1844-1930) demonstrates a masterful control over the warm and cool tones that always play over skin #ilyarepin #repin #russkoyeiskusstvo #russianart #artcollector #drawingtbt
