The Geometric Figure
Structure and geometry in the figure is obscured by skin, muscle, bone and our inaccurate perception of what we are attempting to accomplish. This is more interpretive than other processes and requires our ability to observe and understand perspective and simple forms in space. It requires seeing the figure as something that can be sliced, planed and transparent. Learning this process makes it easier to understand volume and foreshortening relative to line.
