I have moved on to the second chapter of Bert Dodson’s Keys to Drawing, and he now has you copying from a “master”, after guiding you through the drawing styles of several. I chose to have a go at drawing in the style of Giorgio Morandi who has what Dodson describes as a “patient crosshatch stroke”. As the drawing in the book was rather large, I just chose to focus on one small section. Here are our drawings side by side:
And my attempt a bit closer up:
I surprised myself with how much I enjoyed the repetitive nature of the cross hatching.
The next step will to attempt an original drawing in the style of the chosen master.
