Mark has been working with models for the past few years, to practice and increase his aptitude for drawing from life.
Mark Says "I am trying to focus mainly on line, and proportion. I am trying to be able draw fluid lines, which are curvaceous, and also drawn with one stroke. I do not want to be slow and scratchy when drawing, I would like to be able to produce works quickly as if by magic. I am a long way off from being able to do this. Having this goal is something I try to be mindful of during my daily drawing practice, as well as when drawing a figure from life. Much more confidence and practice is needed, But I do feel like some progress is being made."
Mark decided to release his Life drawing sketches, they show beginning of a long journey with practice, and show his inspiration for the line figure linocut series.
