20 x 15 inches, conte drawing
Drawn as one of a series, this was inspired by studying the drawings of Tintoretto, Degas, Ingres, Annibale Carracci, Andrea del Sarto and John Singer Sargent. I also found inspiration in "Richard Schmid Paints the Figure", an interesting approach, enhanced by his incredible drawing abilities.
Who wouldn't be inspired after looking at so many wonderful masterpieces?
The real trick is not to meltdown and to not give up.
It was Degas, I believe, who recommended to a student "Lines...draw many lines".
Truly, life is not long enough to do everything.
