Erp...I meant Da Vinci. My brain kept telling my fingers MIchelangelo :D

 

Anyway, my DA VINCI copy is done, 5" or 6" graphite (super tiny for me). Going to be a thank you card for the friend who bought me the book.

Ah, no worries.. I have studied both. I actually have a copy of the DaVinci sketchbook but the Michelangelo book I was referencing was on loan from the local library. TBH, a lot of their drawing look really similar to me.

If you like that style check out some Caravaggio too.. I honestly think I prefer him to DaVinci and Michelangelo..

Absolutely. Caravaggio is probably my favorite painter. There's a great large format book available on Amazon. I have a WIP canvas with a copy of Judith...

I bought a large format Caravaggio book when Borders was going out of business. It is currently hiding from me.. probably with my copy of the Divine Comedy :(

Had a plein air drawing lesson with my painting instructor today in Little Falls. Got a late start due to rain, had about an hour before the actors had to hit the stage for some Shakespeare. Love the scene they fell into.

Charcoal, 14x17

Tried this one on newsprint, it was pretty difficult to shade. Graphite on newsprint, 9x12.

Been a while. Most of the sketchbook stuff is general figure structural stuff that I've posted before, since I'm reviewing Steve Huston's book again. I find it important to draw my way through my instructional books. As I read a page, I replicate all the drawings on it.

 

Also taking a lot of time working on a proper method Bargue drawing (I'm 20 hours in and not half done). I just updated the blog with more info so head over there if you want to read about it, but here's the sexy:
