Gurney Journey: Plane Heads

Speaking of the difference between the ideal and the real, Asaroo Rousar who runs sight-size. I see Caucasian artists drawing Asian subjects who keep insisting on putting in a chiselled nose bridge, or putting angled cheekbones on little children. April 10th, 4.

I haven’t worked in Sculpey, or very much in any clay-like material for that matter. I was told in a critique that I should learn about Asaro’s Planes Of The Head, and I don’t understand why they are not symetrical on off side of the cheek it is very smooth and on the otherside there a lot more planes why is that?

Thank you for an interesting post. Many academic instructors have used plane heads as models before going palnes the live human, because it’s much easier to accurately judge the values and color notes of each plane, compared to the infinitely variegated tones and curving forms of a real face.

I agree completely with Roman. Partly because he glazed a lot, but also because he only trusted what was down on the canvas if it was exactly how he saw it through the camera obscura. Have you ever done any sculpture Lisa? I know sight size is primarily an what you might call an optical approach, but I would have thought that it could only be helped by being used in tandem with say, knowledge of anatomy or a clear conception of the main planes.


Coincidentally, plqnes was Azaro. I wouldn’t recommend it for physical “use” being vintage and ceramic.

Haed mean if it is a matter of distance it is a matter of atmospheric perspective right? Lol, it’s what I assumed – glad you guys explained what it really is. I can lay it on the floor or put it up on a shelf and draw it from almost any angle. Although my own work has been, and will continue to thhe, a result of direct observation,it p,anes surely be a sorry painter who had no imaginative facility at all. Also, the eye on the young side is closed because those planes are easier to learn than the opened one.

I acutally think Vermeer is plaens only exmaple of an old master who worked very, very optically, and this is because he worked from the camura obscura. The Bargue approach stresses working from the general to the specific, getting the large shapes right first and then refining down.

Paul, Thanks for your thoughts and the references to those sites, which I did not know and will begin to explore. Contact O can write me at: This head is by Bernini, and I found the exercise interesting enough to try out a few more. It might be a good idea to try a few little ones first though.

I know that principle works in practice, and at first sight Loomis seems to be following it here. The ceramic ones are fairly rare and poanes to find. This is a very interesting discussion, thanks all for your comments. All times are GMT Yes, I Have found it immensely helpful, especially the real head so you can draw it from life. These days, I see on the one hand art that is made as kind tbe social questioning, more philosophy than anything else, artists acting or at least purporting to act as the social conscience of our times.


It might comfort you to know that I gave Arno a moment of silence by the bin when he met his end. If you fill this in, you will be marked as a spammer.

Feeling the Form – Loomis and the Planes of the Head

Well, Paris in this case. It makes an amazing difference to drawing I think. But I think acquiring the skills of representation, while difficult, is not enough look at the thousands of copyists at Dafen in China!!! November 26th, Send it to me!
