Undrawing is an observational approach to drawing the figure using triangulation and expressive marks. Undrawing requires no prior figure drawing experience. With minimal training you'll learn where to start, what to look for, and how to capture even the most complex and challenging poses.
The basic premise of Undrawing is that we have an innate sense of spatial geometry that can be leveraged to allow us to draw from life quickly and accurately. Rather than abstraction of the body, as in classical art training, Undrawing is about seeing simple relationships. Whether you're a first-timer or have years of experience, your observational skills will improve.
Level: Beginner to Experienced
The Undrawing Workshop has been developed by artist Alex Alford (@AlexDrawsLife) and has been offered in partnership with the awesome Brooklyn Figure Drawing meet-up group. Alex has taught Undrawing, in its various incarnations, in Paris, London, Dublin, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, and from his studio in Asheville, NC. Alex has been drawing the figure for over 40 years and is delighted to share these techniques with artists of all skill levels.
