January 30, 2022. Time-lapse. Drawing by Michael Newberry, showing the triangulation of the hand’s knuckle landmarks. Triangulation is a great technique which makes drawings in proportion, feel natural, and a special living beauty when all the points are lined up well. The start is beginning with two landmarks, then triangulating a third point, by observing the axis lines of the landmarks in real life.

January 31, 2022. Time-lapse. Michael Newberry’s life sized painting, The Collector. A notable aspect is that after the charcoal composition, the painting starts in the furthest corner of the setting, and by the end of the painting Newberry finishes on the tip of the shoe, the closest part to us.

Aug 16, 2019. Time-lapse. Triangulation drawing of a magnificent convent in France. 34 sec. One of the lessons from our @ProvenceArtExperience workshop April 2019, was how to draw this church’s beautiful interior using triangulation. It is an awesome technique which artists can use to place a few objects like a group of trees and a pond, or more complex things like a portrait or figurative work. The idea is to use two landmarks as anchors and sketch in the direction towards a third point/landmark, making a triangle, now armed with three points you map out like star chart all the relevant points. This process elegantly solves issues with perspectives, foreshortening, and proportions. I think it is the best path to arrive at beauty.

Jul 5, 2021. Time-lapse and Discussion about the painting. Newberry discusses the simplified process of working from back to front in this psychologically challenging portrait of a young man that committed suicide. Music, the beautiful Aria da Capo è Fine from J​.​S. Bach: “Open” Goldberg Variations, BWV 988 (Piano) by Kimiko Ishizaka.
