#323 Drawing: Deer . . .

Drawing is essential to understanding a creature's form and anatomy.  After teaching sculpture workshops for over 25 years, I continue to encourage students to observe their subjects through drawing.  Look at the drawings of the great animal artist Bob Kuhn: They are studies in structure, design, and the animal's individual characteristics.

Shown is my recent sculpture of Swamp Buck  . . .  below a Bob Kuhn conte' drawing of deer.  Sculpture is three-dimensional drawing and drawing is vital to creating art.
