2 Hour Pencil Study: Sanguine & White (Conté á Paris), Strathmore Tan Toned Paper
I’ve really been dying to understand how Raphael and his contemporaries were able to achieve such amazing hatching techniques so I pulled up a few of his pieces and just sat and stared at them for what seemed like hours. His subtlety moves me in such a profound way. While I may not have captured it in my first attempt here, I am certain that with more practice I can get better results and will develop a really good habit for discerning value.
Your turn: Is there an artist’s style that you’re really amazed by that you just cant get out of your head? Have you done a study after them and if so, how has it affected your own art?
