Darren Rousar – author of the book ‘Cast Drawing – Using the sight Size Approach‘ which I read before I approached my cast drawing of the female bust has found a little treasure and he wants to share it with you.
It’s ‘Méthode de Dessin’ by Adolphe Yvon which has been printed in the 19th century and holds no copyrights anymore. So Darren is giving his scans to the public and asking people to help translating it from french to english. This book is one of several instructional books from the academic times in art. The most famous is the ‘Charles Bargue Dawing Course‘ which is beeing used in todays classical art academies.
