Mini-Tutorial: Preparatory Drawings for the Figure

by Michael Newberry

NOTE FROM MSK: The actual tutorial has been removed at the request of Michael Newberry. The link to the tutorial on his site remains in the title above. I highly recommend you go there and go through it. Here is a small quote from it:

Blithe, 1990, oil on linen, over life-size 54x76"

Covering your bases is the idea behind making preparatory drawings for a principal, figurative work. Atmosphere, details, and color are different but important aspects to a truly successful work.
