dstaffo Finger painting large, quick portraits with my college students yesterday. They are actually way more talented than this - finger painting is harder than you would think! #studioremixportrait 4mon
  •   laurwalt Hi Deanna! I am a huge fan of your work - so happy to have found your Instagram! I am wondering if you could recommend an anatomy drawing book? I am interested in learning more and love the way you capture the human figure. Thanks! 2mon
  •   dstaffo @laurwalt thanks for your kind words! Unfortunately, I can't offer too many anatomy recommendation books from personal experience. I learned anatomy best from doing lots of sketching from everyday life - people in cafes, parks, airports. Trying to draw people of all genders, ages, and sizes. I also took several life drawing classes in college and still sneak in a sketch or two when I bring in a model for my students. It also helped to draw people in action - either from life, photos or video stills. Sketching the movements of athletes, dancers, gymnasts, and people doing parkour gave me a better idea of how all of the bones and muscles coordinate and how weight shifts with momentum. Good luck! 2mon
  •   laurwalt Wonderful advice!! Thanks you so much! 2mon
