Doing my own thing

I have some plans to develop some new figure compositions
In order to find different arrangements of forms
I resort to the Masters.
My Rubens book cannot be found
Michelangelo is next
I draw and scribble his figures.
I find them unfamiliar, but this is good.
His figures are lively and full.
I look for balance and interaction
The trick is to superimpose my figures over his models
As Degas said, Copy the old masters while doing your own thing.
