Monday!


It is rewarding to sketch from my big Sargent book...because I see over and over how Sargent used darks to draw interest and to hold shapes together. I'll add this to my Sargent project

Here's my corner sketch station..... Daisy commandeered my stool. 

Sketch: Celeste Bergin, Boy in the Studio (after John Singer Sargent) charcoal on 6x9 toned paper

Daisy is a beautiful cat! I think she should be painted. As always, your Sargent sketches are fantastic and sounds like you're learning a lot.

Daisy looks healthy. Is she as large as she looks? 16 lbs maybe?

I really do enjoy seeing your Sargent sketches. You do them so well..

You are mastering his use of values. I see it in every single piece you've done after Sargent. And I agree; Daisy is gorgeous!!

I bet you get something out of this project each time you do one of these sketches. Very rewarding!

Daisy looks pretty happy:)

Well done! You've got me thinking about doing a project like this. Will you draw each image in the entire book?
