Done around 1495 this painting takes its name from the ferroniere the sitter wears around her brow, a common Lombard fashion. In the nineteenth century this work was much admired and widely copied.
A main challenge in the beginning was to capture the correct dimensions of the head in the three-quarters view. The Drawing Academy video lessons and the supplementary text (Drawing the Human Head) helped very much with this…

Thank you Vladimir, thank you Natalie
This course gave me a great opportunity to develop my drawing skills, to learn a lot of things like perspective, human anatomy, hatching techniques and much more. I am self taught, and before the drawing course I only new how to draw “what I see”, not “what I know”.
Drawing Academy taught me “how to draw what I know”. This improved my art greatly. Your course gave me the knowledge of things that can only be learned at art academies…

Even though I am in IT professional but soft-copy never attracted me, tried some graphic software also but I am fascinated with artwork on canvas, drawing paper or something physical art I can touch and feel.
Art created on software also hard work but it never appealed to me. From my childhood drawing was my hobby, always wanted to learn more and come up with some WOW kind of art work, one day just out of blue, I search online drawing school and when I saw the Drawing Academy course, enrolled straight away without recognizing its potential and value, just because of price. Many thanks!!
