Life-drawing is the key to painting. Why? Because it forces you to observe and to measure accurately! I have taught many students life-drawing, though you struggle at first in getting the measuring correct it pays back enormous dividends for the rest of your life. If you can draw the figure, then I believe you can draw any subject. Believe it or not, even people who know nothing about art, if shown a drawing or a painting of the nude, will immediately see if the figure is not drawn to the correct proportions! They will sense that something is not quite right. On the other hand, if shown a painting of a landscape they were unfamiliar with, half the painting could be out of proportion and it would not be obvious.

I advise, that along with the measuring process, you also start to develop tone (or shading) as this will turn a flat drawing into something three dimensional.

Another example of a life study, done in one of the classes. The class is suitable for both absolute beginners and those more advanced who want to take their life work to another level, with guidance and tuition.

Once competent with the drawing process, then you can really start to experiment with style – trying new ways of rendering the figure. You might want to try rendering the figure in a semi-abstract style, eventually taking it to abstraction?
