I thoroughly love drawing the figure from life. This is the only aspect of art that I practice in which I almost always get lost in. I’m glad that I’m able to attend life drawing at the Hipbone open studio twice a week.

I’m actually very happy with most of these gestures and I don’t say that often.

My recent studies of form and volume have really helped these drawings. I can see that practice paying off well in this drawing in particular.

One of the best portraits that I’ve done in a while.

I just wanted to focus on the values in the back for this pose.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
