It’s so tempting to want to include all the details your eyes pick up on as you take in the figure, but being disciplined about what you include and what you leave out is one of the biggest determinants of how your drawing will go.

Unnecessary extra detail will make your forms less clear and distract from the things that you want the viewer’s eyes to focus on.

We are working hard on Figuary 2021! 28 days of figure drawing throughout February from Croquis Cafe accompanied by a series of tutorials and live sessions from us at Love Life Drawing. Join our newsletter above to stay up to date!
