Remembering how badly the last drawing progressed I made sure to spend the time necessary to get the block in right (which turns out to be about 2 hours). I’ve been looking forward to this plate. It is one of the more dynamic plates of the series.
Here’s hoping I don’t wring the life out of the drawing before I finish.
Here’s the original series 1 plate 7 found in the Charles Bargue and Jean-Léon Gérôme Drawing Course.
As always, your comments and suggestions are welcome.
