Getting Back to Life Drawing

Figure Studies, personal

After many years away from drawing, working as a graphic artist and typesetter, I became eager to once again try my hand at one of my favorite classes in college, Life Drawing. I audited a course at our local Community College (and would take many more classes over the next few decades), and it was thanks to the encouragement of the Life Drawing instructor that I finally made the decision in 1989 to quit my job and attempt to make a living with my drawing skills (how exactly, was another hurtle I had yet to face up to). These drawings here were all of the same model from one of those early Life Drawing classes.
