Cast Drawing Using the Sight-Size Approach teaches you Sight-Size cast drawing as a means to help you learn how to see and draw. Traditionally taught in classical art ateliers, Sight-Size is an approach to seeing, drawing, and painting from life. It is an arrangement of the artist, the easel, and the subject that allows the artist to see the subject and artwork visually one-to-one. It is through cast drawing that the basics of seeing through Sight-Size are learned. This approach is readily adaptable to other disciplines such as portraiture, still life, interiors, figurative painting, and landscape.
