ive been visiting the local museum on the weekends to do studies of casts and sculptures. its really got me back in to using a pencil and i feel it improving my observational skills dramatically. drawing from casts was one of the primary methods of the atelier (workshops) of old. a student would use casts to try and copy exactly what was in front of him. each week i will be posting more of theses studies. these are a few recent studies and the ink one is a study i did about a year ago of the same bust at a different museum.
