Have any of you been following the wonderful series of articles by James McMullan in the New York Times? He has been writing on the Opinion Page about the process of drawing, beginning with simple shapes and advancing to figure drawing. This week's presentation is an introduction to figure drawing which I find inspiring and unique. He suggests identifying the path of energy that runs through a pose and attempting to capture that instead of assembling a series of body parts.
I highly recommend this series. You can connect with it by going to the current article HERE.
