How to draw like Pontormo.

Three words: practice, practice, practice.

Ok, so technically, that’s only one word repeated three times. Regardless, Pontormo is one of my favorite Renaissance artists whose art inspires me to keep on drawing.  One of these days, my drawings will have the same energy, fluidity, and line quality that is present in his work. That is my goal.

Pontormo was a Renaissance artist who worked in Florence. His work inspires me to continue drawing from the human figure.
