#mastermonday This outstanding painting of 'The Good Samaritan' by Aimé Nicolas Morot (1850–1913) wouldn't be half as powerful without his masterful edgework and structural understanding #learntopaint #skills #realism

#tutorialtuesday One of the most important qualities to convey in any figure drawing is a sense of balance. This can be tricky to master as a beginner; student works often appear as if they are in the act of toppling backwards or forwards. If something is about to topple over it is our innate instinct to set it right. Due to this, ignoring this idea will lead your audience to be subconsciously irritated by the drawing without perhaps even recognising why. #drawingtips #howtodraw #lifedrawing

#drawingtbt Interesting to see the preparation and learning that went into 'Ophelia' by John Everett Millais (1829-1896) as he worked out the head structure and expression #preparatorydrawing #sketchaday #learntodraw #learntopaint #millais #preraphaelite

#artworkwednesday Two quite different treatments of a similar subject from LARA Bristol student Alastair Brown and LARA Director of Studies Sofia Welch. Sometimes nature brings out the magpie in an artist #shiny #iridescent #prettycolours #learntopaint #paintingstyle #unique #abaloneshells

#tutorialtuesday One beautiful example of what a fine control of colour saturation can lend a painting can be seen in 'Peasants and the Priest' by Mead Schaeffer (1898-1980), painted purely with a palette of black, white, and red. It is remarkable just how much of a sense of reality the artist can achieve with only this quality of saturation to work with. #oilpaints #colour #learntopaint #painters For the full 'Colour' article see our journal on our website at https://buff.ly/2MdtqaD

#drawingtbt This study by Edgar Degas (1834-1917) reminds us to practise - Degas demonstrates an incredible control of edges #drawingaday #drawanyway #practice #learntodraw #howtodraw #masterdrawing #degas
