Since I first
mounted this discussion on Prud'hon, I found a few new things. I made changes
to the relevant pages as follows
click pointing finger to go
I have yet again rewritten some of the Prud'hon discussion.
New Demo. There is a new 10 step demonstration. After teaching the technique to students for the
last year, I found that different chalk hardnesses for the different steps
were working better than previous recommendations. The fundamental flow
of the technique remains the same, except in accordance with the eyewitness
account, I start with white hatches, not the black.
I have now rewritten much of the Prud'hon discussion.
to Others. There is a new section on a comparison
between Prud'hon and the standard Academic drawing.
Improved Recipe. There
is a new recipe for black chalks...
New Demo (now removed). And
there is a new 10 step demonstration.
The fundamentals have not changed.
Eyewitness Account. Thanks to a heads-up
from one of my readers, I found this valuable quote. In the footnote below,
find an assertion that Prud'hon did not use charcoal in his chalk drawings.
Wow! I found the perfect papers!
