Sketch a Volute Freehand with George R. Walker

DM BlogAs we were working on the October 2014 issue (#213) of Popular Woodworking Magazine (which mails to subscribers in early August), Design Matters columnist George R. Walker stopped in the offices and shot a quick video that demonstrates the technique of drawing a volute freehand.

Watch as George steps through the process to draw a classical form that can unlock your inner eye, and read more about it in our upcoming issue on newsstands August 19th.
