The Polykleitan fold




















Intro to Anatomy, Fine Art 213_x7.2, charcoal on parchment.


The Polykleitan fold is the fold of the external oblique flank as it sits over the edge of the iliac crest of the pelvis.

Polykleitos was a classical greek sculptor who first emphasized this form as a convention.

During the renaissance period the philosophical movement of Humanism emphasized education and the expansion of knowledge. This ideal extended to the intense study of classical antiquities and greek sculpture. As such during this period you can note the significant use of the Polykleitos fold in works by such great masters as DaVinci, Michelangelo, Durer, Raphael, even mannerists like Bronzino and Parmigianino picked up on this trend.

Transparent oil wash


Heads and Hands 1, Illustration 222_x11.1, 18x32 transparent oil wash on canvas.

The transparent oil wash was very similar in application to the charcoal studies we have been doing. There was movement back and forth in values, massing of shadows and lost and found edges. The primary difference is wet verses dry medium. All other compositional and technical aspects are the same.

Placement


Heads and Hands 1, Illustration 222_x10.1, 18x24 study in charcoal.

Placement is important in a drawing of the head and hands together, their relationship to one another must be accurate to portray a sense of realism. By placing and sizing them correctly the clothing and other elements can remain somewhat loose and impressionistic.

In order to separate light and shadow on drapery one must first
identify the local value. This is a starting point from which to establish the light and shadow values. Dark drapery is more forgiving - the range of value, for light, local and shadow, is very narrow.
