Why I draw and paint the figure

Figures reach out to us, they draw us into a picture and stimulate our thoughts and emotions.
If an artist is to do that convincingly, an understanding of the figure is needed...
and the skill to ply the tools artistically is a constant process of development.
My work with the figure at the moment are just steps up a ladder of indeterminate height!

this is an 'all prima' portrait painted in oils 700 x 500
