About This Course

Start your journey with our beginning course, Foundations and learn the idea behind the Fireside Method and how to apply it in your drawings.
Methods are any individual artist’s way of making marks – the things they do that make their drawings unique to them. And there are as many methods as there are artists, probably more. It’s very difficult to try to learn based only on applying other people’s methods.
It’s much more efficient and much more effective to focus on principles. These principles are all covered in much greater detail in Module 1 of our Foundations course.
So what are the principles?
There are 4 categories!
Shapes

When starting with any design, we want to think about the shapes – the basic shapes that make up that design.

Value

Using a single light source to keep things simple, we are able to depict how light would reveal those forms.

Edges

 

For our purposes, there are only 3 types of edges: Hard edges, Soft edges, and Lost edges

Color

Luckily, with color, we can go in any direction as long as these first 3 steps have been followed properly. We can create interest in color by varying intensity, using compliments, etc
