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.

  1. Fantastic work. I love the flow. I only recently discovered the site and I love it. Post away, sketches, tutorials, anything. I can’t wait.

  2. Absolutely love these! Especially the top bust. Question, are these quick studies or do you usually give yourself as much time as you need when studying the masters?

  3. Thanks Mark! Hmm about 10 minutes or so. I would draw longer but I was standing here, so it was not very comfortable…
