Figure Drawing Class will be starting in just over a week. Time to start organizing my supplies and getting ready for the first day of class. I found a beautiful art book in an old bookstore in San Diego a few days ago. It has wonderful color plates along with many drawings by the French impressionists. I know my art instructor will have us busy doing master studies this term so I was delighted to find some new material from which to choose. I thought I’d get a bit of a head start today and do this small approx. 5×7 inch sketch of one of Degas’ dancers.
