Lately this year I've been trying to step up my art history game. And I keep reading about how all the best old school artists did all kinds of master copies. So I've been doing my fair share. I've really enjoyed doing these this semester. They've taught me A LOT!!!! Highest recommendation!
So I did a copy of a great field drawing by William A. Smith (soldier), and an Ingres drawing. I got a few in progress ones....a Degas, and more Fechin. I just bought a SWEET Ramon Casas drawing book so I can't wait to do a few from that book!! The portrait is from one of my classes painted from a model, about 4.5 hours. I have some issues with it (as I have with a lot of my figure paintings, hence the lack of posts with them), but I finally achieved some things I've been working towards!
