Any ideas how to get the proportions of figures side on either sitting down or standing up right. All my figures seem to either have too short legs or too long arms or massive heads. I guess this is a scale issue any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did David Hockney use gesso on his canvases or just go straight to work ? I’m studying pop art painting techniques and styles and can’t seem to find any reference books which discuss his techniques in depth
