ANATOMICAL DRAWING - Observation and Imagination - by Richard Barnet

The interplay between observation and imagination is at the heart of anatomy for artists, as Richard Barnet understands it.

Richard Barnet's approach to drawing and figure construction is useful to artists working traditionally, as well as to those working abstractly.

Good figure drawing is composed of such elements as contour, linear perspective, and modeling form in light and shade.

Knowledge of anatomy is useful for artists creating the human figure, whether from direct observation of models or from imagination.

Mr. Barnet has taught at the Art Students League of New York since 1980, and at the College of Mount St. Vincent since 1970. He has also taught at New York University.

In most classes, he gives an illustrated lecture acquainting students with the elements of drawing. Over many classes he surveys the anatomy of the entire human figure.

As both a sculptor and a watercolor painter, Mr. Barnet encourages students to explore working in sculpture, paint and other media.

Such work is often a natural extension or consequence of drawing.
