FREEHAND DRAWING


Everyone needs to know how to draw. It teaches priceless attention to dualities like figure and ground, light and shadow, surface and edge, gravity and mass. I am particularly interested in a more sculptural method of drawing, attempting to shape solids in 2D space. This sharpens attention to light and gravity which are invaluable principles of developing architectural space, particularly with relation to the human body. How can one translate a 3D object onto 2D paper and still have it retain its mass?
