Figure Practice - 1
Did I tell you that I've registered for a two week drawing the figure from life workshop with Michael Grimaldi? In June. He's a marvelous artist and is said to be a generous and kind instructor. I also registered for a five day painting the figure from life with Jordon Zokol of the Florence Academy of Art. I've emailed Jordon back and forth a few times and he assures me that even as a beginner I'm more than welcome in his class...warm and comforting words.
In preparation for these two incredible experiences, I've promised myself to do 90 practice drawings. Here is the first, from a drawing by Joseph Sheppard in his book "Drawing the Living Figure," about 45 minutes worth of work.
