The Naked Truth

I’m back to figure drawing this semester….and whilst my perspective is far better than it used to be, it’s still a bit off.  I *could* of course say it is on purpose and be a self-proclaimed “Picasso”……yet this hardly holds water.  After all, Picasso was painting photo-realistically as a teen…..and I’m still trying to get beyond stick figures at the age of 30. 

 ……so here I present to you my interpretation…..or misinterpretation as it may be…..of the human figure.


My grandmother has always stated that in art “One must know the rules in order to break the rules.”  ….which I suppose is kind of like “If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around, does it make a sound?”  …..so if you don’t *know* the rules, is it even possible to “break” them?  Just sayin’…..
