Nude Figure Drawing by Peregrine Higgins

Seated Nude Model by Peregrine Higgins pen and ink

Draw the figure as often as possible to have the line fall where you want it without over thinking the drawing. My mother, Peregrine, would make the circuit in Northern New Jersey to open figure drawing sessions, finding three or four a week. Then she would housesit for a friend in New York City for one or two weeks at a time and walk over to Spring Studio in Soho drawing two or three sessions a day. When she returned home after a week or two of this her drawings would seem to flow effortlessly onto her pads. People often say to me, "I wish I could draw" and I tell them they can draw, they just need the desire to do so and time to practice.
