Bargue Drawing Update

Bargue Drawing #2
graphite on Stonehenge paper

It's been awhile since the last Bargue update, however I have been working on it every Thursday at the drawing class at Atelier 2302. This photo was taken around mid-November so it has changed a lot since then, in fact it is almost done. I admittedly avoided the beard for as long as I could, but in the end it was not as intimidating as it first seemed. The key was to break it down into manageable parts, working from larger shapes to smaller shapes. I can hardly wait to show you the final result- I will be getting it framed. 

The next project will use comparative measure and I will be copying a most excellent Bargue plate of a sculpture of a male torso/body. Ooooh if it turns out I will be so proud!

Since you are here and I've got you thinking about these things why not swing over to the newly updated website of my instructor, Craig Berry, and have a look at his work and the courses he is offering in the new year at Atelier 2302.
