Life drawings

"Life drawing for me is  an essential core foundation skill

 

It's practise for carving

 

Its important to feel the shapes rather than getting hung up on outline or detail - when you can observe & draw the carving just follows"

 

I find it best to try and draw unconsciously and just follow my instincts

 

The ability to hone your observation skills and capture the essence of a pose on paper is key - proportion, scale and foreshortening

 

Exact precise meticulous drawing is not what matters here, but capturing the feel is"
