A Drawing a Day

I hear a good way to improve one’s drawing skills is to sketch every day so here we go – starting January 1st 2017,  I’ll be posting a drawing a day. The biggest challenge will be to get over the idea that every drawing I post has to be perfect. Musee d’Orsay small bronze sculpture of young dancer by Degas.
