The next step
I have worked from the live nude periodically since the early 1970's. This blog starts in my second year of working almost exclusively from the figure.
In the fall of 2015 I reintroduced still lifes and an occasional cityscape into my painting repertoire. Rather than abandon this figure blog or start a new one I decided to just add them to the conservation.
All drawings and paintings posted on this blog were done entirely from the live model.

Working from a live model there is no predicting if your efforts will be successful - there are simply too many variables involved in the process. However, ones chances of a good outcome are greatly enhanced when the model displays a level of proficiency that challenges your own.
