Last week I attended a workshop at Scottsdale Artist School taught by Henry Yan. Henry is a 20-year teacher at Academy of Art University in San Francisco, where he teaches figurative drawing and painting. And the SAS workshop was just that, figure drawing in charcoal. Henry’s work is beyond whatever words I could use to describe it, so I’m including a few images I took with my iPhone. Here’s what you might not understand at first glance: the images here took him only 20 to maybe 60 minutes to complete.
I thought I could draw a little bit before I got to the class. But they say humility is good for us. Oh, well. Practice, practice, practice. Back to the ‘drawing board’. Pun intended.
