Matthew Archambault

A Passion For Drawing The Figure

Matthew has a strong passion for figure drawing. While in college Matthew was amazed at how the old masters were able to draw the figure both from imagination and life in such a realistic believable way. Matthew has devoted countless hours of life drawing as well as the study of human anatomy to master his craft. Understanding that each drawing gives him the opportunity to improve.
