Drawing From Life

I haven't been using live models for quite a while and I miss the spontanaity of sketching rapidly. I like using ink since there is no going back to correct - or at least not much.

When I traveled with my late husband, Kai Winding , I always had a sketch pad handy and I would draw as fast as possible, since jazz musicians do not stand still while playing.

Here are some of my sketches:

This is from my book, Yoga for Musicians and Other Special People. Long since out of print.
