So this is a horse head that I copied in pencil. This is form the Charles Bargue and Gerome Drawing course book. Doing these drawings has trained my eyes to see better. I was under the direction of Ryan Brown and Niki Covington. Ryan has an art school called The Center for Academic Study & Naturalist Painting (CAS), in Springville, Utah.
Here are two more copy drawings I did from the Hallie Ford Museum of Art in Salem, Oregon. I tried a new experiment. The bottom sketches were done in front of the Italian drawing. Then I would abandon my sketches and go to the next room where the upper image was done from memory. I don't think they are as successful as the last ones. I only had two hours of time, I wish I had all day. The security guard kept eyeing me. But.... he also provided me with a chair to accomplish my experiment.
