Nude Figure Studies 2009-2011

The human figure is one of the most challenging subjects to draw and paint. This means that drawing and painting the figure accurately, requires acute observation and practice, practice, practice.  I began attending live nude model classes in Lakeland, Winter Haven, St. Petersburg, and Tampa, FL between 2009 and 2011.  Along with fellow artists Tony Corbitt and Aaron Corbitt, I would draw or paint from the model at least 8 hours a week.  These are some of the sketches I made.
