Drawing the Nude from Life with Costa Vavagiakis — “Form is dictated by the source of light,” says Costa Vavagiakis, in this stunning demonstration of drawing the nude figure from life. Watch as Vavagiakis explains where to place the figure on the paper and how to see “in shapes and the apexes of shapes.” Moving his easel up and down, he teaches how to find the “forms that are fixed so as to work from the fixed to the flux.” Be amazed as the artist, working with only a simple pencil, a white pastel pencil, and a kneaded eraser, creates the breathtaking illusion of life. Note: This workshop features a nude model. DVD. 60 minutes.
