Life Drawing, 06.01.17, conté on paper, 14 X 22 in.
The other night one of my fellow life drawing students asked me about learning to draw. I suggested she get some figure drawing books from the library. She replied that she had read lots of books and they don’t seem to help. I told her, “Don’t read them. Draw the pictures.” In my experience, this teaches the hand and eye structure, anatomy, and proportion. The only way to learn to draw is to practice. I should also have mentioned that practice continues for the rest of one’s life.
