Auguste Rodin Drawings

Source.

More famous for his sculptures such as The Kiss and The Thinker, Auguste Rodin was also a very talented with a pencil.  If you are in Paris please go to the Musée Rodin and visit these beautiful works.  If you aren’t in France, you can have a glance of some of the drawings here.

I have always had an affinity with figure drawing.  To me the quick, raw lines are the best way to capture a body.  Bodies are constantly in motion (even if it is just a heartbeat) and a successful figure drawing always alludes to that.
