The next step
I have worked from the live nude periodically since the early 1970's. This blog started August 9th, 2012 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 add them to the conservation.
All drawings and paintings posted on this blog were done entirely from live models or on location.

Where my art is concerned I have an inclination to work through rough patches. There comes a point when simply working harder, trying to force results, becomes counterproductive. Sometimes an afternoon at the library is a better option than a session at the easel.
