Beginning Drawing :
The first basic step focusses on learning outline, proportion, and shadow shape. This helps in enhancing the student’s visual understanding of three-dimensional forms and further to in strengthening their capabilities with two-dimensional surface.
The basic Bargue Drawings allow students to understand the procedure well and develop skills in reproducing the outline, blocking out shapes, as well as refining line quality. Students start gaining precision through regular on-field practice.
Bargue Plates were designed by the late great draftsman, artist, and painter Charles Bargue (c. 1826/1827 – April 6,1883) as a part of an intensive drawing course system.
It may appear that Bargue plates are just a glorified version of sterile copying, but as you about its uses, you’ll understand how eventually these will benefit you as an artist.
The fundamental principle behind learning Bargue drawing is to accurately record what the eye sees without deviation or mental hindrance. Once, the students learn this, they are in a better position to integrate their imagination in a precision controlled manner.
What needs to be done?
Students are required to replicate three small Bargue drawings in pencil and three larger ones in charcoal. However, the complexity level ranges from simple to complex. The students have to accurately draw the subject’s outline, proportion, and shadow shape using pencil or charcoal, and paper. Having a precision is a must – students are required to see the shapes properly, apply the sight-size method, and fully control the techniques.
By the conclusion of Beginning Drawing the student will be able to :
- Accurately understand the drawing procedure
- Apply the sight-size method to measure the subject efficiently and create an accurate outline
- Translate 2D form to later convert it into a 3D form
- Draw correct values
- Understand the use of various materials like graphite or charcoal, stumps, eraser and brushes to generate clean renderings
- Upon successful completion of the program, students will have acquired a very high practical ability, together with a deep insight into the theory and historical traditions of drawing.

About the Artist:
Rishabh Sud went on to formalize his knowledge in art by joining a renowned Angel Academy of Art, Florence Italy, and graduated in 2015, after graduating he decided to learn more and joined The Florence Academy of Art, post graduating from FAA he wanted to bring this form of education to India.
Rishabh has already had a major solo show in 2015, Moments, based on 35 portraits in oil and charcoal. His work hangs in a private collection in India and abroad.
Rishabh has borrowed techniques from both impressionism and academic art to create a style all his own. Sketching with charcoal and pencils, his refined sensibilities allow him to capture the subject at just the right moment, with just the right intensity, until they are not just paintings, but alive, conversational entities. By completely immersing himself at the moment he manages to capture a vision, a thought and gives it a new and unimagined dimension
