Life drawing is a constant adventure, full of exploration and the unexpected.  The figure is something we know so well yet have to find anew each time we draw.  I love the challenge of working from the live model.  I like to work quickly, building the figure, with charcoal, pencil, and ink.  Sometimes a few lines are enough, sometimes more.  Below is just a small selection of my life drawings.
