Now I am turning to a very big challenge of a learning section, part 4 which is the figure and the head.
To start off this part I am going to learn other artists’ works from fabric and form.
For me, I first know and learn to draw the lining cloth when I was young and started off learning geometric solid and still life sketching but I am never confident on that. I also tried on my sketchbook recently but I haven’t got one I am completely happy one with.
So for this research lesson, I seriously need to observe other artists’ work and improve my works.

Look at these traditional classical artists’ works. They are realist painters. The fabric is a pronounced sense of three-dimensionality and the effect is giving a feeling of light and shade.
Then I searched some modern artist’s work and my eyes were focused on a clothing drawing.

This image is a clear one for drawing students for observe the artist’s technique with line and tone also mark and making skills.
The other area of fabric drawing I am thinking would be the fashion designer. They could be expressive or abstract I never know if I will give a go for practice?
