As the course notes indicate, these are very different approaches to drawing movement. They both use the stance of the subjects as part of conveying the movement in the scene. David Haines’ scene is rendered almost as a fast frame photograph and has taken many hours to complete. Richard Hambleton’s, in contrast, feels like it was painted in near real time.
