LIFE DRAWING SESSIONS- (AND WHY DOES ONE DRAW NAKED PEOPLE!!!!?)
Studies in graphite, gouache, ink, pastel and a bistre combo. Sessions at Bellevue WA Daniel Smith drawing workshops 2016. Painting figurative work requires a lot of practice at LOOKING and DRAWING. Copying photographs is not enough! Drawing and painting from a live subject (or even a "still life") connects eye and hand in a way that copying cannot do. I am finding needed practice in this regular workshop a few miles from the studio.
