Mommy, why is my right arm off the page?

Posted by Mark in Mark's Sketchbook

One of my biggest problems right now is misjudging how much space I need on a page, even with a photograph in front of me. Drawing from life is even harder; I guess I’ll have to adopt that stereotypical thumb-forefinger window until I improve. Drawn on newsprint with a soft wax crayon.

    I remember doing this in art class….We were told to imagine both your canvas and the subject (photograph) like The Brady Bunch squares…and do each square so if you have the correct proportion…Does that make sense? It helps a bit.

    I like it! If only I had even a speck of your ability. I guess classes would help with relationship to sizes.
