P.V. Study

More ellipses today, plus a few heads. One fun exercise for the dreaded ellipse: take a 6 inch length of string and push pin it to cardboard, the pins 4 inches apart. Put the pencil point inside the string and draw the string taught. (You get the string tangled up a couple of times, must reposition after first half of ellipse.) You can see from experience how the shape has to be, no matter what you think you are seeing! I found this very helpful.

  1. Love your drawings, Jean. I especially like the simplicity of the nude.
