Starting a new year with more figure drawing

Starting the year back with a new sketchbook and a desire to get back into the swing of figure drawing again.  First Step, start drawing, (started).  Step 2 get back into live figure drawing sessions (starting this Sunday)... after several years away this could be rough for a few months until I get back into the swing of things.  As always, thanks for stopping by. -db
