Spanish term or phrase: dibujos del natural de estudio analítico
"El enfoque metodológico se basa en la llamada metodología artística de investigación. Es una metodología de investigación basada en las artes visuales, utilizando formas de indagación en las que destaca la recogida de datos mediante dibujos del natural de estudio analítico. Incluye el análisis de la forma y estructura de los monumentos funerarios, su proporción, estructura y uso, desde el punto de vista del dibujo."

I think this might be written badly...
What do others think, please?
Many thanks.

English translation:life drawings performed with analytical purposes
Explanation:
To my view and after reading it carefully several times, the source, which is by the way available online, seems perfectly normal to me, I do not see anything wrong with it.
As for its meaning, I think the author is just referring to "life drawings that are performed with analytical purposes", as such drawings are actually used, for instance, in the "metodología artística de investigación".

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Charles Davis: OK, but not "life drawings", which are drawings of people. I think this is probably what they're trying to say, but it's a dubious proposition in archaeological terms.// Proposition, not preposition! The latter is a minor point. I do basically agree.

  -> Thanks for your feedback, Charles. Please read my note to Comunican above. The dubious preposition is not essential in my view. // Please excuse my bad reading. But my message is exactly the same as before. Thanks again for your standpoint.
