Hoyt makes an excellent point: that simplification is the key to understanding, which is in turn one of the keys to mastery. I don’t start with a big flat separation of light and shadow only in my quick drawings; drawings of all lengths begin this way.

Every once in a while you just need to go on hiatus for a bit.

I haven’t posted anything in a while, but I’d like to now that I’m starting to find some inspiration again! I feel like my figure drawing has started to stagnate a bit and I think I need to break away from it for a while and focus my attention on some alternative drawing exercises: copying master works, still life painting, and just plain drawing in my sketchbook. 

These figures are a bunch from the past month. The last session I had was a lot of fun but the few prior to that have been a bit on the boring side. It seems to some in waves like that.

Anyways, I’ll be making a good mess in my sketchbook this month I think and, if all goes well, some of those drawings might turn up here!
