Drawings of…Sculptures!


Sculpting never stops, but more about that later.

I have been trying to find time for drawing which I enjoy more and more. I have always been fond of prehistoric, Babylonian, Cycladic, Egyptian and ancient Greek and Roman sculpture, and I thought I would explore this area through various approaches in technique, style and process related experimental ideas. Here are a few examples:
