AboutA three day workshop in anatomy drawing for artists at the Arts Complex in Edinburgh, taught by figurative artist Alan McGowan, on the weekend of 13th - 15th April 2012.
The course is conducted through demonstration and explanation, reference to anatomical examples, and with an emphasis on drawing from the life model. We will examine the individual elements of anatomy, the main skeletal, muscular and structural forms, whilst being conscious of the overall integrity of the body as a coherent system. While concentrating on anatomy we will also inevitably touch on more general issues involved in drawing the figure, proportion, perspective etc.
