The pencil traces the slow movement of the eye across the skeleton, bone-by-bone, each edge described by a sharp, hard line. Do not erase.

Follow the same instructions 51 F IGURE 1 as above. Begin by allotting 10 minutes per pose. In a week or two, abbreviate poses to 5 minutes. Draw the figure and skeleton together—again, in an all-but-simultaneous manner—in drawing them together the eye will become accustomed to darting from one form to the other and measuring their relative positions spatially.
Add crouched and reclining poses. Introduce foreshortening. WEEKS IV–VI By now students are generally capable of coping with the objectives outlined above. Two models are booked for the studio sessions, each one posing for approximately thirty minutes until the other steps onto the 31 F IGURE 2 The author staged a highly choreographed event out of the dense overlay of the model’s poses.
