One thing I have found very helpful to get more dimension on a 2 dimensional surface is drawing from the cube.
When I was first learning to draw everything seemed flat and did not seem to come forward. This helped me tremendously to think about pulling forward the areas that are closest to me and pushing back the areas furthest from me.

The following are room dividers that I have for sale. I enjoyed making three panel divider with designs flowing through the three panels. A friend of mine made the wood frames.

The human figure is a fascinating subject to draw/paint. Very expressive, complex and at times difficult to draw. Body language is how we understand what a person is thinking, feeling or doing and trying to capture that on paper, canvas or even glass is a challenge for me. I enjoy using different colors to paint to form to express different emotions.

I enjoy the depth and love the anatomy in this pose. I also enjoy the intertwining of glass design and painting.
