Joined a figure drawing class tonight at Williams College. It's been 7 years since I've drawn the figure from life. Great practice for me. The figure forces me out of my tedious attention to detail and tight painting to seeing the "object" as a whole solid mass or a landscape with diverse terrain. Poses were 6 min. and 10 min. in duration. These sketches are on 24"x36" newsprint in charcoal.
