Re: Basic 101: Class 16

Bon, that is just luscious. I go over to the WDT and see Diedre's masterpiece and come back here and see your's, then I end up posting my undressed statue.

Hi Stacey, Dave, JayD, CJ and Judi . Your right Judi, this is going to be a great class.

Re: Basic 101: Class 16

If that is Queen Victoria, I am glad you REALLY did not post her naked! Looks great so far--cant wait to see the progress.

Looks like we have a small class this week folks--I appreciate you all sticking to the class and I personally would like to welcome and encourage any lurkers who feel the urge to join in.

Re: Basic 101: Class 16

Hey Deb, I am hoping someone identifies Bons folds! Glad you could make it it--seems like I was just talking to you in class 15!

Bonnie, I hope you will consider posting more of your folds in the class.

Re: Basic 101: Class 16

Thanks
Umm I have no idea what kind of folds i did
Just tried making it look like fabric from my imagination and I know it would have turned out better if I would have looked for folds.Think I did this about 6 or 7 months ago and so I don't know how long it took me?.

Re: Basic 101: Class 16

Mary, that's a great beginning!

Bon, I think I see Inert folds, half folds and diaper folds in there - almost the whole lesson in one . . . um . . . dress(?). Whatever it is, it's gorgeous.

Deb, thanks for pdf.ing this lesson. I'll be watching for it.

JayD, I didn't find any instructions for folds in the book, or in the links at the top of the drawing site. Any ideas where I can find something?

Re: Basic 101: Class 16

The fold class has been added by request and is not in the DeReyna book--you can see the examples of each fold by lookiing down toward the bottom. I inadvertately did not add the images in and did not discover it until this morning. There are no "instructions" for drawing fold but I DO suggest that you try to duplicate the folds with a towel or a cloth. You can certainly break everything down into geometric components but remember that folds are the result of cause and effect.

I wish that de Reyna had covered this in the book but for some reason it is ignored altoghether. A shame since I think this subject is very important.

By the way--go back to the definitions--look at drop fold--that is Bonnie's fold.

CJ, there is a drapery tutorial listed in the Learning Centre. The link is here. I think it's quite a helpful addition to Jay's lesson.

Nice start Mary!

Re: Basic 101: Class 16

Morning all
Thought before I start into the project I would practice the folds. At least 2 of them anyway.
Not happy with whatever I was doing on the top of the second drop in the second dwg, but I will relook at it and finish it.

Re: Basic 101: Class 16

Hi, Judi--those are very nice. I like the way you left the diaper fold partially finished. I did not detail my sketches so that you guys could see the construction. Have you decided on a drawing yet?

Re: Basic 101: Class 16

Hiyas everyone,
Jay great class & demos as always. I especially like that you named the folds.
As I told Jay in a PM I am going to be taking a break from subbing & C&Cg (due to personal matters), so I do hope the other subbies help him out. I will be around but not as much.
I will be poking in the main fora now & then so if ya see me pop in & say hi.
BEAUTIFUL Folds Judi

Re: Basic 101: Class 16

Just finished the pdf and it's mailing off now! I'm off to work now. This looks great Jay! I think it's an important class - if you're going to learn how to do figures, you need to learn the proper techniques for their clothing. Unless you plan on doing nude studies all the time.

I'll check back on my lunch time.

Ann, CJ and Jay, I mailed you each a pdf.

Deb

Re: Basic 101: Class 16

Something I painted last summer for the WDE. I was pleased with it, not always the case with my paintings. It is a simple subject, often the hardest to convey. I've been copying folds from pictures, Rembrandt and Beatrix Potter, always steal from the best. So far, nothing original.

Re: Basic 101: Class 16

Connie, and well you should be proud. The painting technique reminds me very much of the work of Pierre Bonnard. The fold is very well one and the composition is very good. It is very nice all around and as said before, you should be extremely proud.
