Bargue Drawing Companion DVD


Learn the training techniques of the masters in this easy-to-follow instructional DVD, The Bargue Drawing Companion. For the first time, artist and instructor Fernando Freitas of the internationally acclaimed Academy of Realist Art, shares his proven step-by-step instruction technique that has helped artists of all levels of experience master their drawing skills.

The Charles Bargue Drawing Course was developed and widely used in the mid 19th century as a foundation exercise for fine art training. Throughout the years it has been used by many great masters as an essential process in understanding the principles of shape, proportion, value and form. We like to think of it as the complete visual alphabet that all artists should know as the foundation for their work.
