Drawing and painting a human figure has always been a difficult but gratifying challenge for artists of all levels. Nudes have been the subject of interest for ages.
Since centuries, artists have treated human body as a work of art by God Himself. Ancient sculptures and artworks from India to Europe have worshiped the nude form.
Understanding the nude is relevant in today's art as well, even for drawing clothed people!
In this course, we will learn:
1. Basic proportions, body types, bones and joints
2. Capturing the movement
3. Understanding the female face
4. Doing a finished sketch of a female nude - back
5. Doing finished sketches of female nude - front
6. Doing an oil painting of a female nude.
I am a self taught artist living in a very populous city called Pune, in a very populous country called India.
I work in the thriving Indian software industry since two decades. But art is my main passion (apart from family, books, movies, scuba diving, travelling, and writing, not necessarily in that order).
I am actively involved in fine arts, graphic novels, animated graphic novels, and short film making, I work in several media like pen & inks, watercolors, oil colors, acrylics and digital. I sketch and paint various themes like landscapes, figures, portraits and urban sketches. I am an active member of the Urban Sketchers community.
I regularly conduct workshops for sketching, and have participated in several exhibitions. My sketches and paintings are present in private collection in India as well as in other countries.
