Sunday!


Today was the 2nd day of Bowman's figure workshop. (To see photos from the workshop, go HERE).

One of the things Bowman said during the workshop sticks with me: "Any artist worth their weight will never stop learning. They can't ever say they know it all....They'll always strive to know more". (Well, that seems accurate...don't you agree?)

All of the studies from the weekend look great! Seems like it was a lot of fun. And it's true-how could you say you knew everything? Always nice to keep learning isn't it?
