Renaissance Masters like Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Durer knew that great works begin with solid foundations. That foundation starts with having a step-by-step P.L.A.N. like the world's great Masters have followed for over six centuries.
This Blu-ray details the elements of that P.L.A.N.
(P) The Three Ps are Placement, Proportion, and Perspective.
(L) Landmarks (26 points used to map the human form.)
(A) Angles, Alignments, and Axes that create a system of comparative measurement.
(N) Navigating Negative Shapes to create foreshortening.
During this three-hour Blu-ray, Michael guides you through this P.L.A.N he has developed over several decades. This video lesson is the Foundation of learning to draw in the Renaissance tradition.
