I think the best way to learn to draw is by drawing the figure. I think the best way to draw the figure is in a group of fun people. These were done in New Mexico with a bunch of painters that met every week. Everyone was funny and smart and we talked the whole time, even to the model! It was never convenient to go but I did and always had such a good time. I got better at it over the years and eventually took watercolors and painted. We alternated men and women models every week which is unusual having an even ratio. Naked men make people nervous! Although I did sell some of these paintings, there were not many takers for the boys. So I still have them. The experience was so valuable I strongly recommend it, especially if drawing is difficult. Nothing much better than sitting around drinking coffee, laughing and sketching nudes!
