I have a question that I would appreciate if you can address in the incoming podcast. Weekly life drawing you suggested we do, either figure or still life, and also our body of work drawings. What size should they be? 18″x 24″? Makes a big difference since smaller drawings are mostly drawn from wrist while big from shoulder.
My understanding is that drawing big is preferable because encourages long sweeping gesture lines and is easier to draw more accurate from shoulder. Certainly technique still need to be mastered. I suppose fewer moving joints would make for easier eye hand coordination.
I would appreciate your take on this subject?
