Life Drawing and Sketches

This portfolio of sketches is mainly executed in short bursts of time, live in studio. The immediacy of working in graphite, charcoal and pastel is an invigorating and liberating experience. Drawing from life requires an intense mix of detachment and cognizance, yet the medium itself can be both unforgiving and fleeting.

The life drawing studio is where I am most likely to lose myself.

I have been working on a blog post called the Basics of Life Drawing, for any who would like a primer. There are links to some of the artists I find most inspirational here as well.
