Elizabeth Mitchell Last Saturday was our Draw like Diebenkorn class. Since Diebenkorn himself was unable to join us (technical issues with zoom), I stepped in to facilitate with slide shows and observations about how Diebenkorn uses form and line to lead us around the composition. I set up still lives that were Diebenkorn inspired, and we had a fantastic live model who researched Diebenkorn’s style and turned her living room into a Diebenkorn-esque scene. Fantastic! It was a great day of drawing. Below are some of my favorite moments. Drawings inspired by Diebenkorn Anne Walker, portrait of a studentKate Flores, portrait of a student We started our warm up by drawing other students in the zoom windows, then studied the wrinkles in our own hands. In setting up the still lives, I made sure to have the lines of each object lead to another object, making pathways in and around the composition. We pretended our drawing tools were ants on their way to get to another edge of the paper. Anne Walker We had a fantastic live (online) model who rearranged her living room, assembled the perfect outfit, and set up poses to perfectly reproduce the Diebenkorn angles. She was fantastic!
