Here’s another drawing from the Thursday Night Life Drawing Group at Swansea Print Workshop, done on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 with a free Markers app.

Sometimes I’m asked why I draw nudes. It’s because I’m a traditional artist and I work within the European tradition which has portrayed the human nude for around 40,000 years, from Paleolithic cave art, through to the Greeks and Romans, the Renaissance and up to the modern day. It’s embedded in my culture and underpins my art practice.
