Mr Muscles

24in x 18in
Graphite on paper

I decided I needed to work on learning to see and draw muscles. I found this guy on one of the life drawing websites and decided to give it a try.  It was an interesting exercise and I learned a lot, but I found that this sort of detailed rendering was a bit tedious.

Nude Study

Oil on canvas board
8 x 10 inches

I am taking a life drawing class and I have been practicing at home using the website This was a photo by Lee.  It's a great resource of poses to work from.  After doing a bunch of drawings I was really itching to try my hand at painting one of them. I think it turned out pretty good.
