More George James Lessons

George spent another lesson working with scale. He drew the two front figures in a way that you saw their totality and so they related to one another. He then added the head and neck of a woman, quite large behind them. To the left, he added a large hand. Since the picture plane is 2 dimensional, one need not be constrained by the precepts of reality. The large head and hand add a lot of interest to the design, filling the space with something unexpected that makes the viewer puzzled and pondering about the picture. George used the opportunity to demonstrate how he sculpted the features of the face.
