Not a lot of action with the sketchbook at the moment as I’m back studying the human body. I’m continuing to use the (amazing) 19th century classic, Artistic Anatomy by Paul Richer, which I was reading before we went away. Started by revising the eye and now I’m on to the neck – it’s so fascinating and really deepens your understanding of the body’s form. It takes ages though as you’re constantly looking up what everything means/where exactly you’re meant to find it. For example: ‘Sometimes there is a curved line separating these forms running from the superior insertions of the temporal muscle to the front of the external orbital process.’ Argh.
