Today I did this sketch to add to my Sargent project. I added mineral spirits to the charcoal to make it extra-dark. I especially like the white bits in her hair. I wonder if she had those in her hair when she showed up to model....or if they were Sargent's idea.
This afternoon I went to "Private Collection" at Broderick Gallery, an exhibit of paintings and etchings by famous artists like Picasso, Dali and Franz Kline. Here are a few photos in a slideshow (or direct link HERE)
