Last week we had our drawing class divide into two sets of rows facing one another. The ultimate goal was to give the students more practice at drawing people. We also wanted them to focus on scale and detail. For instance, in this drawing, I looked at the layers of people and chairs, paying special attention to their relationships to one another....if the girl in front of me is three inches, how tall is the boy at the back of the room? I also tried to add the most detail to the girl sitting directly in front of me and the least to those the farthest away. One of my struggles was adding enough detail to the center girl's blond hair without going overboard with lines.
