“Study of Hands and Feet.” Linoleum block print, 4″ x 6″, 2014

I’ve been attending Wednesday evening figure drawing sessions at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.  Often, it seems more useful to me to make detailed sketches of parts of the body during the short poses instead of gesture drawings (which are great exercises in their own right, but tend to be boring).  As a result, pages upon pages of hand and foot drawings have accumulated in my desk, so I decided to make a little print containing some of my favorites.  I wanted it to look like a page in a sketchbook; I think I succeeded.  Maybe there will be more where this came from.  It would be fun to do one of ears!
