I like to do a figure drawing exercise where I go to Hollywood Cemetery and look at the people across the James River on Belle Isle through binoculars. I try to memorize the gesture and draw it without looking at the person again. This helps with getting a “memory for the figure “. Even with binoculars the people look tiny, it must be a half mile away or more. I’m challenging myself to draw the figure smaller. These people are in the shade. I drew them at 1 inch. There’s 2 more figures in the full size picture drawn at 2 inches, standing in the sun. I sent the image to my web guy and you can see the whole landscape on my web site soon.
