life drawing

it's been more than 40 years
since i sat in an art school studio
sketching a nude model.

as i drew last night i kept wondering
why my art school education
didn't include anatomy.

i realized that my recent experience
with clothed models, while satisfying,
is scant preparation - the contours of
fabric are forgiving in ways that
the contours of the human body are not.

no more excuses...

  1. I took a life drawing class once. It really made me want to look closer at everything I looked at in the future. Keep drawings. Brought back fond memories of being in the studio.
