“As artists we can never exhaust the possibilities of drawing and painting the human figure. The human figure is capable of a large variety of movements, but there are some limitations imposed by the interior skeleton.” John Raynes helps you understand and work with these limitations in Part 2 of his "Drawing & Painting People" series, Anatomy of the Body (http://artistsnetwork.tv/p-241-drawing-painting-people-with-john-raynes-anatomy-of-the-body-part-2.aspx). In this 81-minute artistsnetwork.tv (http://www.artistsnetwork.tv) video workshop, John helps you create realistic and expressive figures. After discussing the important points of anatomy that affect the way a person looks on the surface, John sketches standing and reclining figures from life with a variety of dry medium, then paints a reclining figure with oil.

In this preview, John sketches a standing figure to demonstrate the main anatomical points needed to define and give realistic shape to your figure.
