These figure paintings and drawing demo tutorials, demonstrate one artists approach to watercolour figure paintings and drawings. These demos were created to support my students online learning, along with anyone who has the slightest interest in art.
These demo tutorials were created for all artists who enjoy watching figure paintings and drawings unfold for a live student audience. Initially made for my online figure painting and drawing students - I decided to make them available for anyone interested.
Watercolour of Steve under his cabana. This artist / model, was the inspiration for a demo tutorial during an online session with my Illustration students last summer. Steve has starred in a number of my demo tutorials of figure paintings and drawings. This is a great BIG 'shoutout' to you Steve.

This video demonstrates how to gently and safely sharpen drawing tools with a blade. This technique takes time and patience. Learning how to expose your medium beyond the wooden casing offers the artist a wider variation of line weight.
Two short demo tutorials filmed to encourage students with their online learning. Drawing figure gestures can be fun, but they're often frustrating for the artist and student when working from computer screen. Strong figure paintings and drawings begin with the gesture - as it adds life and spirit to the form.
Check out this video where I draw 2 - 3 minute hand gestures. The hand of the artist can be their best model. It's one of my short demo tutorials for my drawing students at Seneca College who are studying how to create figure paintings and drawings with traditional media.
For those who are just beginning to learn how to draw the figure, or for those more advanced who need a refreshing tip on how to loosen up and get the rust out, check out this loose, no stress techniques. Enjoy!
For the artist who loves to keep it simple, these demo tutorials are for you. One trick that leads to stronger figure paintings and drawings, is to draw the form using basic geometric shapes.
Fast artist demo tutorials that support 'keeping it simple' is something to keep a lookout for. One very important area to structurally solidify is that core - the torso. Simple shapes that help construct the torso, aka, 'The Bean', help build the structure for figure paintings and drawings.
Figure sketch in 9 steps. Graphite on paper. This model was the muse for a couple demo tutorials of figure paintings and drawings for my students. It's good practice for the artist to draw a form in several rotations while trying to maintain accurate proportion.
This video demo offers viewers the basic concepts of perspective.
