Thanks to everyone who joined the Underfashion Club for “Sketch Night” on April 13th, 2016 with Bil Donovan, the artist-in-residence for Christian Dior Beauty! We hope you enjoyed experiencing figure drawing with a practiced professional in the industry.
Bil gave a comprehensive breakdown of how to create stylistic figure drawings with simple, deliberate brush strokes. He urged artists to simplify each figure and pose into straight and curved lines with a series of exercises. Beginning with contour drawings and slowly introduced additional details, participants transformed these complex images into defined pieces of art. Lingerie models Pearl and Dhana were fantastic references, holding a variety of poses for practicing artistic techniques.
Our guests created beautiful pieces of work and were an absolute pleasure to work with! Thank you for showing an interest in the arts and joining us for dinner and cocktails in the Society of Illustrators. We hope to see you all again at our next event, the “Modern Allure” Parsons School of Design Scholarship Contest on May 17th, 2016.
