What you will learn

In this lesson, master draftsman and painter, Danny Galieote, analyzes and draws from a seated male figure-study by Italian Renaissance master Jacopo Pontormo. First, you will learn how to block-in the figure using your knowledge of rhythms, angles and tilts of the simplified forms of the body. Then , you will see how to breakdown and study Pontormo’s line quality and forms that are wedging together to create a beautiful sculptural drawing. Also, you will learn how to apply soft tones and edges in a manner that Pontormo preferred, which will give your drawings three-dimensional, solid, rhythmic qualities with line-work that has weight and supports the structural design elements needed for masterful draftsmanship.
