Draw from the Inside Out

flys eye view

Class notes from Drawing the Figure in Space with Elizabeth Rupprecht, SAIC, 1991

Mark Tobey drawing diagram of fly flying around studio – what’s behind you is as important as the rest. Fly’s eye view.

1. Cezanne drew from inside out

2. Yin/yang – figure/ground.

3. Color – reacts against what’s behind it.

Go back to back wall – pull planes forward towards you.
