Feathers and hats

Brigandines

In this lesson few lines are used, the object being to explain the general direction the lines take. To draw a full feather, many more lines should be added.

If the feather is soft like those of the ostrich...

Renissance Ink Wash Pictures

By this time the student must desire to mk in a drawing. Ink work is extremely interesting, but it requires much practice. You may be able to render a nice drawing in pencil and be afraid to touch your pen to it. Many feel this way, and many good drawings have been spoiled because the student did not practice the lines on a separate piece of paper. The very idea that you are afraid will cause your hand to be unsteady, and a very steady hand is required. The idea is not to draw just an ink line...

In sketching a dress directly from the model, proceed as follows Let us imagine that we are viewing the dress itself...

The stripes near the bottom follow the bottom line of the dress as did the hem and tuck , going in and out of the fullness. They continue to do this, gradually changing until, at the waist, they follow the waist line.

How Draw Side View Skirt

In taking up this lesson the student must remember that a good form is the foundation for all succeeding lessons. No matter how pretty a dress or design is, if it is placed on a dumpy figure, it will have no style whatever. In this lesson we first learn how to draw a layout for the form, which consists of two ovals, Fig. A, then how to place the form on this layout. In the next lesson we dress the same form in a very simple dress. A form must have good proportion and style. A form leaning...
