 About three weeks ago I started figure drawing in an old Opera House on Sunday mornings.   I Love, Love, Love to go to life drawing sessions and work with a model.

 It’s been a long time since I’ve worked with figures..There was a “couple of years” period where I was drawing from the model 3 times a week.   I had stacks of drawings.  I lost all my figurative works on paper  in a studio flood 3 years a ago (that’s another story).   Now,  drawing again it’s strangely liberating to be working without a whole stack of visual history in the flat files.

and….It’s GREAT to be working with a model again.

Here are a few .

I like to make strong charcoal drawings…but, I wanted to try pencil to see what I could do with the line
