Relying on the masters
I was aching to paint/draw tonight. Caught a bit of American Idol while I ate an INCREDIBLE hamberger and fries that my wife dished up. I mean sauteed onions and mushrooms, home-made buns.... OK, I digress.I had freelance work to do after dinner. Did that.
Later, I was looking at one of my Sargent (John Singer Sargent) books. I'm feeling VERY rusty so I thought it might be a good idea to do a study of one of my heros. I did a pencil sketch and was very disappointed in the results. But as I addded color, it started to come together. What do you think?
