Studies of Rodin @ Legion of Honor Museum

These past 2 years I’ve been working intently and almost exclusively on foundation skills: ie. traditional drawing and painting.  Part of that traditional training is regular studies of the old masters.

I recently got the privilege to see master sculptor Auguste Rodin’s work at the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco, CA.  Since I have way more traditional drawings and paintings then digital/commercial work I’d like to start regularly posting sketchbook pages and other foundational studies.
