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.

Six By Six
A local art center has an annual show titled "Six By Six". No entry can exceed six inches in any dimension, including the frame. Viewing last years exhibition I decided to try my hand at the format. I have done plenty of small scale work over the years but not with the figure and not in a square. These limitations turned out to be more challenging than I had expected. (For more examples see 1/7/17 and 2/24/17 posts).
