Bargue #3

Bargue # 3
articulated construct
graphite on bond paper

In this next step of the Bargue drawing I am working out the "articulated construct". Once all of the outside lines are determined (and they may still change as more measurements and alignments take place) then it is time to hone in on the inside shapes. At this point all of the smaller shapes within the "envelope" of the larger shapes can be mapped out. Heights and widths within the big form are found using alignments and comparative measure. Fun and challenging!
