Welcome! This blog began as an assignment in a digital art class. That was in 2008. I decided to keep it going as my art journal. It is fascinating for me to see how a painting develops, so this is where I post my painting progressions and exciting new things I find on creative blogs and websites. I hope you will learn along with me about painting, drawing and all kinds of art.


After Muybridge

I am interested in the moving figure and this. Pencil image above is from Muybridge's The Human Figure in Motion, plate 103, top, Woman Running. I sketched every other plate out of 8.
This sketch took several days.

I can see there is a lot of work!!
I like best the last one, both the drawing and also the way that the head disappears in the background!
It gives more the sense of movement!

Thanks, Mariela...i think by the time i got to the last frame, the familiarity of the figure made it flow out of my pencil more smoothly.

Teri this is an interesting concept. it's always so hard to portray movement in figure work, isn't it?

Teri said...

Hi Maggie, yes, very hard. Kind of have to blur your figure like Balla's Dynamism of a Dog on a Leash, 1912.
