For over forty years I have been drawing the human figure and continually find it challenging. Drawing from a live model is the primary method I use. Sometimes in as little as thirty seconds I try to capture the illusive movement of dance, a gesture of emotion, or a sensual moment. I have recently been enlarging the scale of my drawings to four-foot canvases, and have been experimenting with different mediums to accomplish this.
