And though I love to paint abstracts, I also enjoy drawing the human figure. Drop in classes for figure drawing weren’t doing it for me so I signed up for a fashion illustration course in the Fashion Dept. at City College of San Francisco. I loved it! This class provided the jump start I needed and since finishing the course I’ve kept up a regular drawing discipline.
I can’t emphasize enough the importance of following a hunch, a gut feeling, even if it makes no sense.
