Creative Form Drawing – Workbook 2

USD $26.95

Workbook 2 begins a variety of Celtic knot-forms, all both beautiful and fascinating. (Hint: If you try them, you’ll know you’ve got it when you feel like you’re dancing through the over-under knot patterns.) From there, you will move through many remarkable modern intertwined forms, then back to traditional labyrinths and much, much more. Woven into all these is a short discussion of the 12 senses, the role of ‘will’, the nature of movement, convex and concave forms and their effect. There’s a lot more than this, but even this much is leaving me rather breathless. This is a great book – in my opinion the most enjoyable of the series. Be sure to have your pencil and paper handy when you sit down with it!

Description

Workbook 2 of Rudolf Kutzli’s 3-part guide to creative form drawing

These three workbooks offer a thorough, step by step guide to form drawing. As Brunelleschi, the Renaissance architect said, ‘The lines and forms are visible signs of divine gestures. Learn to understand them and you will comprehend how God created the world.’

Anyone wanting to develop their drawing skills, as well as artists, teachers and students, will enjoy the creative challenge of form drawing. Regular practice can help discover what the art of line can mean. Drawing skills are developed through systematic exercises, and can develop self-confidence, balance and tranquillity. Simple form drawing is used in Steiner–Waldorf schools as a companion discipline to handwriting and drawing skills. It offers a healthy antidote to screen culture.

Form drawing is an artistic activity using the art of line. It dates back to the ancient mysteries and flourished in the early Middle Ages as well as wood and stone carvings all over Europe, such as the Celtic sun crosses. Form drawing is found in many tribal cultures as the ornamentation of the body, clothes and buildings.

“This book must be read with paper and pencil. When it calls itself a workbook that’s what it really means; with a refreshing minimum of philosophical baggage the book proceeds into exercises. Beginning with the most ‘simple’ exercises – the straight line and the wavy line – the work unfolds in four stages that allow any person to follow a fundamental path of outer evolution and inner discipline.” —Alice Wulsin, Review
