I hadn’t done any life drawing since I left art school so I was pretty rusty when I started it up again at the beginning of the year. More often than not I find it frustrating, but sometimes the conte or charcoal or brush does what I want it to do. It’s a lot like writing – totally unpredictable. This is one of my best drawings to date done in conte on butcher’s paper. My teacher is Stanley Wong. His linework is just so sensitive and beautiful.
