I have attended hundreds of life drawing classes over the last 20 years and had many wonderful experiences.
During this time I experimented with most kinds of equipment, mediums, and techniques, and this has led to over one thousand life drawings in my personal collection, and it’s still growing.
For several years I learned anatomy and studied life drawings by the great masters. This knowledge greatly improved my skills as an artist.
In my articles, I share everything I know about life drawing along with examples of my work.
