figure drawing

I went to a figure drawing session in a small art studio called Spring Studio yesterday. There were many small paintings, old drawing desks and painting materials all crammed up in a small basement, I wonder if this place is a reminiscence of what Soho used to be, before all the chain clothing shops and restaurants took over. I've always needed to draw more of male figure models than female models since I don't really understand male bodies that well. So I was delighted to find a male model at this studio and I had a lot of fun drawing him.

Steve McCurry

He's probably most famous for the photograph of a green eyed girl from Afghanistan. I happened stumble upon his blog today and found so many crazy amazing photographs! Here's a few of my favorites. His photographs are everywhere in magazines and books and in the web. To check out his blog, click here.
