But I pf acquiring the skills of representation, while difficult, is not enough look at the thousands of copyists at Dafen in China!!!

How many paintings did Vermeer make a year? Some artists, I believe Tony Ryder is one, think that the study of anatomy can get in the way and that artists may end up drawing what they know rather than what they see, resulting in a compromising of observational skills.

I wouldn’t recommend it for physical “use” being vintage and ceramic. For an armature, I screwed a length of wood,2 X 1 inches yead section I think, to the board with a couple of metal brackets.

It is essential to know anatomy and the canons of facial proportion, period. Thank you so much. Made me recollect something — bet you gonna like it too: Loomis is the beginners guide to construction, yes, you have to take it further. In the text of the Bargue book, Gerald Ackerman describes Bargue as having a foot in both camps, and attributes the success of the Cours de Dessin partly to this. Just get the plastic one like I did for use.


Feeling the Form – Loomis and the Planes of the Head

February 4th, 2. Hi Lisa, thanks very much for posting your thoughts here. How does the mouth fit into the planes coming down from the cheek bone to the chin in hezd second one? Perhaps I tried to implement them too literally, and Loomis meant them only azaro a general guide. Hard to describe, but tangible. Yes, I Have found it immensely helpful, especially the real head so you can draw it from life.

I had the same experience as you with Loomis Paul, and I too suspected that he first learnt how to draw and then subtracted these ideas after the fact. All roads lead to Rome, as they say.

I thought it might be interesting to take an old master drawing and see if I could superimpose the planes on it, feel the form of the head rather than copying ov drawing. Thanks for the info on the Asaro head. Perhaps such questions are of necessity more often left to people who have the time to address them.

It seems oddly apt that I should start out with the Loomis head and hands book and end up, via Asaro, DuMond and Sargent, back with Bargue and the French academic tradition.


I got hold of a mannequin bust from ebay and drew the main divisions of the wsaro on it. Political Realism, about which Jacob Collins writes, asago not just an academy debate, a reaction to the use of classical busts, etc.

The Dutch painters of the Reformation had to find a way to survive without the patronage of wealthy families like the Medici and the Church, they had to produce work targeted to a new market.

When I was a street artist in my twenties, every now and again people used to ask me to copy poor quality snaps of their nearest and dearest, which I used to do quite happily for them. However, I think that these planes are too vague to plabes really useful except in very general, conceptual terms.

Have you ever done any sculpture Lisa? Speaking of the difference between the ideal and the real, Darren Rousar who runs sight-size. Coincidentally, so was Loomis.

I’m a mostly self-taught artist. That would be great Lisa, thanks. Don’t worry, it happens! January 17th,
