Figure Studies 5/10/11

Lately I've been inspired by the figure drawings of Pierre-Paul Prud'hon, a 19th century painter and draughtsman.  Now, as it was the 19th century, many artists had abandoned the classical way of drawing upon completion of their education, or altogether regardless of their education.  Many of the impressionists quit their respected academies because they were too classical and traditional.  But Prud'hon was among those that embraced it, and held onto it throughout his career. 
Anyway, here are a few figure drawings of mine from the past week.
