Cast drawing

The process of a cast drawing – which is the next step in classical art education after having made a couple of Bargue drawings – are quite the same as with a Bargue drawing so I won’t go into much detail here but rather let the pictures speak for themselves. A tutorial can be found on my other website: www.Cast-Drawing.com

If you can’t see the animation, just click on the picture to open it in a separate window. The GIF animation should then show.

Always work with sharpened charcoal! For larger surfaces like the background you can use the residues from sharpening. Dab a brush or a sponge into the charcoal dust and work it into the area. Charcoal can be sharpened with sandpaper (click here for a demonstration).

Here you’ll find information on the right paper. You can either use a white or nearly white paper and use the paper’s value as the highlights – meaning that you don’t cover the white of the paper for the lightest spots of your drawing cast – or you can use a toned paper which makes the use of chalk necessary. I would recommend to use a white paper – keep things simple!

Now set up your atelier at home and work hard.
