"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"

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"
