Classical Drawing Series: Fur

  • Thursday, February 04, 2016
  • 6:00pm - 8:30pm

Of all the things that nature artists draw, fur is one of the hardest. All those individual strands overwhelm us, which in turn perplexes us. Do we have to draw every single hair? How else to show it? This class will concentrate on how to capture the textures and lengths of different kinds of hair and fur.
