I've seem to have hit a wall in my drawings.While my still life's continue to improve a little and so do my copy's. I find myself unable to draw almost anything from my imagination. I think I have the line part down but I just cant seem to wrap my head around form or shading.
For the past few days I've been doing some anatomy studies of some of Bridgman's books. It was while I was drawing them that I noticed I was copying the lines and shading,but I didn't fully grasp the form of what I was drawing. I had a hard time seeing the actual volume/form of the object. I mean I saw the volumes in Bridgman's drawings but didn't fully see them in my own till the end.
I think this also has to do with my other problem of not being able to visualize my drawings on the paper before I actually put down the lines(which leads to a lot of erasing).I mean I can see it in my head ,but I just can't seem to plan the lines as they should be on the paper.Is this just case of keep drawing and it will hit me sooner or later, Or is there something I should try to help me better understand it?
(I think this is the right section to put this in, If not sorry mods please move )
