i haven't painted in nearly 3 weeks. This was an excuse to bust out the paints- good practice. Done on drafting film which proves to be a beautiful and unique surface. I originally was testing charcoal on it which also looks pretty- I wiped the charcoal off with a mineral spirit wash and painted this over it.

A bargue drawing

Tonight I have a study to show. Based on a bargue plate- commonly used in academic art institutions. Nearly 10 hours were spent on this one, and next time I should probably slow down! While it does look pretty, there are many flaws from the original.
