There is a long tradition of visual artists drawing directly from the human figure as a means of developing skills and concepts.

 

These drawings from Dennis Bryans’s sketchbooks demonstrate how the artist has employed proportion,composition and mark making to communicate his response to each subject. The drawings also provide insights into the artists thought processes, as some show fragments, some observe fleeting moments, and others again reveal detailed investigation.

 

It is readily apparent that sustained practice and intense concentration are required to produce drawings of thisnature. Those with a particular interest in the visual arts often have a high regard for an artist’s drawings because of the direct impulse and raw skill this art form requires.
