Drawing for Painters Workshop

Workshop StudiesWhile in California recently, I had the pleasure of attending a Drawing for Painter's workshop taught by Fred Hope in Laguna Beach. Shown here are a couple of studies I made there. Fred made a compelling case for drawing as a powerful means for becoming a better painter. To be sure, I've found the more I draw, the more likely my brushwork is to be fresh and spontaneous. I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and recommend it!
