Assortment of drawings on A3 pages using charcoal, water-solubles, pastels, conte etc.
Now, what do I mean by 'local dynamics'... this is as against general dynamics, which refers to the general balance/weight distribution, flow of gravitational forces down the body as influencing pose etc. Local dynamics refers to the interaction of local tissues e.g. the compression of flesh at the waist which is bent on that side, the tautness of a tendon when the neck is turned in a direction etc. My aim is to be aware of these little dramas that act out in the human figure, which scripts the larger drama of the pose itself.
Unless specifically mentioned (at the bottom) my gratitude for the various photo refs also goes to various unkownn sources.. thank you so much for helping me with my studies!
