This month I am going to have two series running concurrently. The first, "Drawing from the Masters", began yesterday. Today I begin the second. It is also on a master, but this time a more contemporary one, Maxfield Parrish (1870-1966).
Here's another page with several nice pictures of his work:
He had an incredibly detailed technique that led to a style all his own. The basic technique he learned from "the masters," but his own innovations led to his fame. So, I'm playing with the CPs and vellum to see what I can come up with that's interesting...(forgive me for showing you scribbles above in the images - playing is not exactly a science! :-) I do have an idea for a composition I'd like to do, but I need to keep digging around for some reference materials.
