Dale Moyer

In this workshop, learn to capture who the models are, what they are – their thoughts and moods, attitudes, and the ever-changing moment – by focusing on the most expressive gestures of the head, hands, feet and other landmarks. Starting with the basics of anatomy, structure, form and composition, learn to draw from the inside out and the outside in, bringing your work alive with feeling, mystery, and emotions, and giving it a “life” of its own.

Medium: Charcoal, Conté, on paper
