Classical Figure Training
Hard Vine Charcoal on Ingres Drawing Paper 28"x 22" 1986 $1000
This was one of my favorite figure drawings using this method and under Paul's tutelage. It was also one of my last. I probably finished about 20 in the two years I worked on them. I was also attending Mass College of Art getting my MFA under the tutelage of Paul Rahilly and George Nick at the same time. Both had little good to say about this training, but perhaps grudgingly accepted the result achieved. Many other teachers disapproved of it. Many students stopped by the graduate studios to look at it, for whatever reason.
