New School Color - Casey Klahn
These are wonderful. I've never tried this with pastels, only pencil or charcoal or ink. What a great exercise.
Thank you, Jean.
I think Degas would be pleased.
Beautifully rendered - like the master himself!
High praise from two draughtswomen I hold in esteem.Jeanette, I'm reading Degas' letters now, and it seems like nothing ever pleased him. He was highly self-critical. I'd be pleased to copy his work the rest of my life - it is very eye-opening to get behind his thinking and decision making via copying his works.Kathy, I am pleased to say most of these are free-hand copying directly from reproductions and the CRT. Not often have I resorted to gridding, although I still consider that hoyle.
What a good lesson for me. To study and try to copy and so learn. You've done a remarkable set here.
Thanks, Bridget. I'm in the studio doing another one. Woo hoo.
Gorgeous. Take a bow :)
I bow to your opinions, Robyn. Grazie.
whoa! beautiful Degas drawings
Thank you, Celeste!
beautiful work. degas would be flattered. I wonder if I were to pick an exercise such as this, who I would choose? inspiring to put some thinking here.
