January 2014 Figure Group Challenge
 
To start 2014 off well -- figuratively speaking! :wink2: -- here are some references to inspire you all.

Laurie is providing some photos of musicians.
Nathan has some dandy Masters' drawings.

You can interpret these references however you like, in whatever medium. The aim is to practice and improve our figure work. ... and to inspire each other. :thumbsup: ... and to have fun! :clap:

Musicians:

His music was wonderful Lauren, full of musical jokes! At the time I took the photo there was a a traditional Breton group playing behind me, he was listening to their melodies and responding to them, they then in turn responded to him, both side started to improvise on the responses :) it was exciting stuff. Normally he plays on the canals around Amsterdam, this was taken at the Semain du Golf, he was part of a large group representing the Dutch in the Morbihan.
