Seek the Big Form: Study Sculpture by Michael Newberry
Figurative sculptors spend most of their time focused on the best way to present the figure. For painters, there is a lot to learn from how sculptors often bring out the big abstract form of the figure.
Seeing one perspective offered by the photo of the sculpture will serve our purpose. Our goal is to look for the abstract shape of the body.
When working with a model, it is always good for painters to shift your position so that you can find the best view that accents the big form.
