da Vinci’s La Belle Ferronniere (Copy)

Artwork by Dan S., Drawing Academy student

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.


I am very pleased with what I have learned so far in just a very short time from the Drawing Academy and I am very grateful for the superb advice from Vladimir.

Thank You,

Dan S.
