Figure Drawing Techniques With Bill BuchmanUnknown - 2012
"Bill has made this exciting DVD to show you a way to bring your art to the next level by taking advantage of the inherent expressive power of the Sumi-e brush, reed pen and other unique materials. His techniques for using these magical tools, which incorporate basic figure drawing concepts, will help you to learn to see and draw the human figure expressively with maximum confidence, freedom and spontaneity. Working with a live model, Bill demonstrates, in detail, over twenty valuable techniques that show you how to prioritize in order to develop good observation and drawing skills while still staying loose and free. Buchman explains and shows you how to manipulate the brush and ink; various kinds of brushes and brush movements; how to create mass and contours; how to simplify the line; how to do dry brush effects: how to use the reed pen and combine it with the Sumi-e brush; how to do the figure with the Giant Charcoal Chunk; and how to work in color with king-size oil pastels, Art Chunky's, water-soluble Aquabriques, and brilliant acrylic gouaches. He also demonstrates simple mixed media approaches as well as his own unique Zen approach. Bill's highly accessible methods emphasize using the best materials and following a practical and logical sequence in drawing the figure while never losing sight of the importance of creativity and individual expression"--Container.
