I love figure drawing, and I wanted to draw some figures, channeling Matisse. There is a Beyond the Cut-Outs Studio at the Museum of Modern Art every afternoon except Tuesday, so I am trying to build my stash of figures that I can turn into cutouts for collage when I attend. Here are three sketchbook pages.
I need to "deliberately practice" drawing hands and feet - and I keep a sketchbook just for that purpose. The poses at the figure drawing sessions are never long enough for me to concentrate on hands, so I clip photos from magazines and use those. I'm HOPING that someday this work will pay off.
