My hat is off to Sir Laurence, drawing study


Here is another Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema study I have drawn. The Painting is titled "A silent greeting." The study was drawn from observation of a colour print out, I forced myself to convert the colours into values. By doing these studies, my drawing skills are growing again, even observation skills. It's amazing how sometimes you don't realise how rusty you are. Will try to keep more of these up through out the year.

  2. Hi Tegan, I just found you through Chris Oatley's blog.

    This is a great study! I think the best part is how you rendered the floral relief, top center. The mark-making there is top notch!
