With reference to Degas' pastel drawings, 'Underpainting' and how to convey the human form is the theme of this life class with Jesse. Developing multiple layers of colour by working on specific aspects of the figure, such as areas where the light falls, or the places where the bone is evident under the skin, Jesse shows how we can create depth and richness in a drawing.
