Re: old master drawings

Thank you Jolanta, Here is Number 4 finished and number 5 I started tonight. I really am getting addicted to these. I have allways loved Degas dancers sketches.

Re: old master drawings

I really enjoy looking at them. The last one was super flexible. I am not questioning her leg because I know how well you can copy him, just the observation

Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Re: old master drawings

More lovely Degas drawings! Ballet dancers always look a bit "off" because of the amazing way they can twist and turn their limbs (it hurts just to think about it).

Alecto, I almost missed your drawing. You really caught the expression on that portrait.

Here's a copy of a nude by Henri de Triqueti. The head shape is quite off, but I can't correct it, as it's in colored pencil (the whole thing is Tuscan Red). I gave the paper a watercolour wash, which turned it redder than intended. Still, it was a good exercise, and I'm reasonably pleased with the figure. Haven't done those for a while.

Monica - A very Lovely copy, indeed! You really did a great job

Thank you Jolanta. Yes, My guess is that these were his studies for his paintings. I love them not for their accuracy but for their action and motion .

Re: old master drawings

I don't know if the community prefers to start new threads when they're this old, but there is good stuff here and this bump may bring it to the eyes of many who haven't seen it.

This is the first of ten studies I plan to do from the Sistine Chapel ceiling. Three Sibyls, three Prophets, three Ignudi, and the Creation of Adam. Cheers

Re: old master drawings

Hi mizunodave I just finished reading through the entire thread and was surprised to find your post at the end. I plan to subscribe so I can see your drawings as you post them. I'm not sure I'll attempt to copy and post, but you might inspire me to give it a try.

Are you going to duplicate the images exactly or are you going to modify in some ways?

Whatever you do, I'm looking forward to the results!
Carole
