Draping Dress Study in Pencil

Title: Draping Dress Study in Pencil
Year: 2011
Medium: Graphite Pencil
Size: 8.5″ x 14″
Notes: A study of compression and stretch folds – specifically action folds, pipe folds, and drop folds for my class on clothed figure drawing. Studying folds like these helps me to understand how different kinds of fabric interact with the body and puts me in the driver’s seat when making my own designs. I used a reference photo from elisafox-stock.
