Life Drawings

Always enjoyed Life Drawing. I look at what I’ve done after a session (2 or 3 hours) and then look at some old masters, Leonardo, Watteau, Henry Moore, to name a few, and see how amazingly accurate their hand/eye coordination was. It’s that effort to capture the line and/or tone of the models form that is the thrill and challenge and when, on the rare occasion, it comes off there’s a wonderful sense of satisfaction.
