“As artists we can never exhaust the possibilities of drawing and painting the human figure. The human figure is capable of a large variety of movements, but there are some limitations imposed by the interior skeleton.” John Raynes helps you understand and work with these limitations as he returns to for Part 2 of his “Drawing & Painting People” series, Anatomy of the Body, helping you create realistic and expressive figures. In this 81 minute video workshop he discusses the important points of anatomy that affect the way a person looks on the surface, then sketches standing and reclining figures from life with a variety of dry medium, finishing up to paint a reclining figure with oil. In this preview, John sketches a standing figure to demonstrate the main anatomical points needed to define and give realistic shape to your figure.
