Continuing on masters copies
Sketches by Danielle Hebert, Drawing Academy student
I felt compelled to continue on the Old Masters’ copies and pleased with some improvement in likeness and shading.
I tried to draw a woman’s face after one of Leonardo da Vinci’s drawings and somehow I find it extremely difficult to position the lines and do correct proportions and angles, as if my eyes cannot comprehend what is there. I tried to draw the skull under, which helped a bit, but there is a mystery to me as to how he creates female faces.
Next step will be a portrait.
