Three biggest mistakes artists make… Brianna Lee

Brianna Lee
Kline Academy Instructor
Figure Drawing and Painting
Every Saturday 10am to 1pm and 2pm to 5pm

Three biggest mistakes in figure drawing:

-Drawing details too soon
-Not looking for the "big picture" shapes
-Not measuring proportions
-Drawing while not looking
-Drawing too hard
-Not grouping values

Three things to make better paintings:

-Think about Value before Color
-Mix clean Colors, use clean brushes
-Be intentional with every brush stroke you lay down (dont mush paint around)
-Think about form and structure and how to convey it with your brush
-If things get messy, wipe off and start again
-Squint and see the big statement
-Details come last
