I had a
used to say
always go back
and change or
He was the
at the University
of Texas in the 70's. He actually did more to teach
me to draw than any other teacher I have ever had.
Of course, it was a life drawing class, and we had
live nude models. We stood at our easels for 3
hours with short model breaks, and the class met
on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. He was
in his 70's then, and he was tough. He would make
us do it over if our drawing did not meet his expectations.
And I am glad now that he made me work so hard (I
wasn't always glad then!) I can always hear his voice
in my head whenever I draw.
