Classical Drawing

Drawing is the most fundamental discipline in visual art, and provides you with a strong advantage as you branch out into other mediums.

Classical drawing is a formal or academic approach to drawing that helps you to see and draw your subject more easily and with greater understanding, transferring that image onto paper through a series of simple, logical, and sequential steps. The principles that underpin this method are derived from the art, sculpture and architecture of Greek and Roman antiquity (hence the term ‘classical’). These methods and techniques were formulated by the Old Masters during the Renaissance, and have been used and developed by artists ever since, transcending style and period.

Drawing includes three and a half quarters of the content of painting . . . Drawing contains everything, except the hue.

– Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780-1867)
