"Figure Study" Seattle city, oil painting by Robin Weiss

Figure Study 8x8 oil  sold

Oh man am I behind again!  Lots going on but will make an attempt to catch up...I know, I know Ive been saying that! Ha!
This was a quick study to explore gesture and distance in the figures walking. Notice that the heads are on the same plane but the legs are shorter.  This happens because your eyes, (which are in your head  =]  ) becomes the horizon line in your one point perspective. The perspective would change of course, if you were laying down on the sidewalk or standing on top of a building or looking down a steep hill. If you want to draw city scenes its important to study perspective. Start out with simple one point perspective and have fun with it!
