Viktilar I thought it might be interesting to take an old master drawing and see if I could superimpose the planes on it, feel the form of the head rather than copying the drawing. The one on the left is a simple breakdown, with front, side, and bottom planes. Trusts only his eyes. At first I thought that looked like a very good way to proceed, very sound. Hard to describe, but tangible. How many paintings did Vermeer make a year?

Viktilar I thought it might be interesting to take an old master drawing and see if I could superimpose the planes on it, feel the form of the head rather than copying the drawing. The one on the left is a simple breakdown, with front, side, and bottom planes. Trusts only his eyes. At first I thought that looked like a very good way to proceed, very sound.
Hard to describe, but tangible. How many paintings did Vermeer make a year? I think the emphasis on self expression which we take so much for granted these days is a peculiarly modern phenomenon, and a hang over from the Romantic movement in many ways.
How does the mouth fit into the planes coming down from the cheek bone to the chin in the second one? However, I think that these planes are too vague to be really useful except in very assro, conceptual terms.
But at least I got to finally resolve how some of those planes might be made to fit together. There was an error submitting your subscription. Hi Paul, first of all thanks for sharing your thoughts and experience. I currently own a plastic one and have this one more of a display piece. Their studios were often more akin to factories turning out product. Feeling the Form — Loomis and the Planes of the Head Away from the spot light, there are also many more artists producing what might be thought of as more traditional work paint on canvas or perhaps sculpture that has more in common with the output of the Reformation painters.
Cheers- Dee at http: If a painter is doing a still life of a violin, say, is the painting any the worse if he or bead used a ruler for the strings? From my own perspective, as a painter trying to launch a career, I see the question of the role of the artist in society as an academic one to me, to an extent at least. It has a fine and long tradition.
I had a drawing teacher twenty years or so ago who made us draw the Asaro planes of the head cast for the first half hour of every class before we were allowed to draw the model.
I see Caucasian artists drawing Asian subjects who keep insisting on putting in a chiselled nose bridge, or putting angled cheekbones on little children. Just get the plastic one like I did for use. Are there any general pointers or tips that would be helpful for me to know going in?
That would be great Lisa, thanks. I can draw a comparison with the way forensic artists work when they do a composite. Hi Keith, Thanks for letting us know about the Faragasso book. Politics is a much more capacious word. I got hold of a mannequin bust from ebay and drew the main divisions of the planes on it.
Your blog is great Paul and thanks so much for sharing your findings. Thank you so much. Now check your email. Fred Fixler, a student of famed Art Students League instructor Frank Reilly, came up with a slightly different plane breakdown for an idealized male head. It seems that all these disparate threads start to join with each other eventually.
Feeling the Form – Loomis and the Planes of the Head
Thursday, 8 October Planes of the head Artists often like to reduce organic forms to something simpler, to make them easier to grasp, and reducing the complex, rounded surfaces of the human body to a relatively small number of planes can greatly clarify its relationship to space and to light. Similarly, when we apply light to a figure, a strong light will make the patterns of light and dark clearer than a diffuse one. For realist artists at least, the important thing is understanding what happens in nature so that we can reproduce it. A plane is a flat surface. Each change of direction creates a new plane, and planes in combination make up the surface of a form. A cube has six sides, i.
