A Practical Handbook of Drawing. The technique used is irrelevant, because in no way a pencil is more indicated than a brush when making decisions. To draw is, in a way, composition. But also experimentation, rehearsing which line will work best in our work and choose the most accurate one. For Hollis Dunlap, the true essence of drawing is an artist making decisions about what looks best, rather than engaging in copying shape. His teacher Larry Golden encouraged him to take his private lessons and to copy the great masters.
That helped him a lot in beginning to understand the drawing. Deane G. Reminding his students that, to be a good draftsman, the first step is always the respect for manual work and assume that excellence is only achieved after years of practice and study.
If we look back and think of Michelangelo, we already have that respect for workers and artisans. His art was connected with the stonemasons, with the very earth from which the stone came, with the most physical nature of its resources. Spending sleepless nights even though their work is not going well. That struggle keeps them hungry, attentive and lucid. Unfortunately, there is a belief in our days that one must find his talent instead of work his talent.
Talent is not caught like the flu, it corresponds to a continuous attitude of struggle and curiosity. The talent is never the result of an initial period of effort that awakens the hidden talent that must then explode. There is no such jump… There is only one attitude. The Renaissance was the summit of this concept of drawing. We also think of the great Michelangelo. He refined every shape to its absolute perfection, and every little element is perfectly coupled with the whole figure.
Even the curls of the beard are in perfect harmony with the rhythm of the shapes of the arms, the folds of the tissues, and even the legs.
The lines flow beautifully and gracefully from all angles and positions of the figure. That is the most sophisticated conception of drawing. Where each line involved flows naturally into the next as if they were a single organism.
In his figures he seeks a universal idea rather than the particular. Evoking feelings and stories with an iconic connotation that moves away from the mere portrait.
There is something very interesting and magical in the way we move a life observation into the two dimensions, and we make it look like an illusion in three dimensions again. The moment you see how the form emerges and a simple sketch happens to have a body and identity that go far beyond the model are fascinating.
As a good sciences lover, Hollis Dunlap delights in human anatomy as a mechanic with the pieces of a Rolls-Royce does. And what function to play, with unprecedented precision. He adores the human shape, intrinsically beautiful and interesting, and how capriciously reflects light. How nature makes its way through rhythms and patterns in the funniest way imaginable. How forms grow and develop, playing an essential function. And how the will to survive creates inertia in its development in the most optimal and logical way possible.
The body is an organized structure where nothing is left to chance. Everything responds to a vital function that ensures its survival in the most efficient way possible. Only when our eye is sufficiently trained can we understand the universal structure that models it. Recognizing the unique design that brings them closer to the universal. Nothing is orthogonal in the human body and everything is connected without interruption. Fluency is an indispensable condition for life and the form flows allowing the impulses to be transmitted between the parts.
The geometric shapes do not allow an organic flow between them because they are symmetrical and contained. When you use geometry as a goal and not as a medium, robots are drawn. The discontinuous and contained shape does not allow any painting to seem alive. Geometry is an abstraction that helps us to understand perspective and light over the organic form. But they are neither form itself nor represent life: Nothing is flat or straight, every shape has three dimensions and a certain degree of curvature.
The anatomy is very useful if you know how to apply it well. The difficulty is that it differentiates parts internally segmented, though within the figure they are not. For example, the hand and the forearm, which if conceived as two categories can obstruct drawing them as a single entity.
The student tends to concentrate his analysis on the particular, obviating the whole. The most important thing is to understand the body as something that moves. Something that feels and thinks as an entity and the variety of its parts corresponds harmoniously.
Scientific, categorical, verbal and symbolic segmentation can be a problem when our objective is to paint the light that bathes the figure. Ignorance has never been a prerequisite for talent. The supports he uses are quite cheap. They work well for him because they are poorly absorbent and the paint flows very easily over them.
The key is to use what eases your painting, over the qualitative criteria. Perhaps the best support in the world is not the most suitable for your purpose. So you must use the support that best fits your way of painting, provided it meets a minimum quality requirement. Work without worrying too much about it. H aving your mind occupied in these details will take a lot of concentration from painting. You will need to put all your potential in the painting, not in how you are going to use the materials.
Hollis Dunlap recognizes that, although he loves good brushes, he spoils them so quickly that he simply goes to the corner store and buys a handful of cheap brushes.

He defends the fact that we must take care of the quality of our painting regardless of the quality of our brushes. Two groups of brushes are used: This is helpful for maintaining a clean division that avoids muddy mixtures. The best brushes are the hard ones, bristle ones. Flat Synthetic ones are perfect for details. Soft brushes should only be used to soften at the end and should be avoided when possible. The palette is designed to be harmonious and versatile, avoiding chromatic redundancies.
It is quite limited but you can extract practically everything you need if you learn how to mix colors well. In any case, whether or not we know how to take advantage of the potential of Titanium White, the most suitable white for painting flesh is undoubtedly Lead White.
It is the best yellow because we get the whole range of greens and oranges. Dark Ultramarine Blue is the most versatile of the blues. Most pigments have a very useful violet hue to get good purples if mixed with red. It also offers a good range of greens when mixed with Cadmium Yellow.
Prussian, Phtalo, Cobalt and Cerulean blues have green hues that can ruin the mixes. The best one is Cobalt blue, but being lighter does not allow transparent shadows and can whiten the mixes. It is a color that differs a lot between brands, so not all Burnt Sienna colors will work well in this palette.
Whichever brand is used, it should look orange when mixed with white. It is the substitute of Alizarin Crimson, Madder, Magenta and other violet reds. While it is more earthy than any of the above if properly used it offers a very natural range of violets when mixed with ultramarine and white.
It has a high dyeing power and should be used in small quantities so as not to generate a red dominant in our entire painting. It is not easy to control and requires practice to master it, but its versatility is excellent.
This color allows obtaining most observable reds. Eventually, it can be reinforced with Cadmium Red, but that will never be necessary for the human figure. There is no need to further complicate the palette with black. For the darker mixes, mix Ultramarine with Burnt Sienna. Also, the same mixture is used to obtain chromatic grays.
Punctually black can be used to reinforce some accents, but it is not recommendable to incorporate it into the mixes of this palette. On the right side of the palette —which usually rests on the easel tray— there is always a stack of previously cut kitchen paper sheets where you frequently rub the brush. Hollis Dunlap is a meticulous painter and does not stain his hands, clothes or floor when painting: Both Lead White and Cadmium Yellow have high toxicity and we must be careful with our own safety.
He loves the quality, feel and finish of oil painting, and tries to keep the paint wet as long as possible to retain all its qualities. Visually, he prefers transparent paint to paint applied with a medium. It is not necessary to use sauces for painting. You do not want it to dry soon but stay wet and moldable as long as possible to take full advantage of oil.
It is necessary to observe how much the tones reflect the surrounding colors, and how much the color of the light is more important than the local color.
His teacher David Dewey, when speaking about adding lights, said that light should be a color —make it a color— which means that even the highest lights are a defined color.
