Welcome to the TWELFTH thread of the Open Figure Drawing Workshop!!!

This workshop is open to any medium and any style. Some informal moderation

Workshop is for Artists to interact with and informally critique one another’s work.

This week we will be trying something new, and working from a Master Painting by William Bouguereau:

Note: This Workshop will last at least 3, and possibly 4 weeks. Depending on how far people get in 3 weeks, we may extend the time period to 4 weeks.

"Dante et virgile aux enfers" (corrected title)

Translated title: Dante and Virgil in Hell
1850
Oil on canvas
110 5/8 x 88 1/2 inches (281 x 225 cm)

One of my favourite Bouguereau paintings! You can count me in this time. (At some point can we do a Gustav Doré?)

I'm not trying to get ahead of everyone, it's just that with the upcoming Workshop, I think I'll have to more or less duck out of this one...even though it's something really cool, and I'd like to see it through...so here's my little update of the moment...

That's a beautiful reference ! A lot of hands and feet, difficult...but perfect for learning purposes...I think I can't resist to give this a try in spite of my poor drawing and painting skills... is it possible to post the wips in the beginners lounge...would be better for me - especially seeing the first updates here!

I decided to start this one out differently so I threw on some hip hop and pulled out my old sketchbook.This is my foundation sketch and was done the same way I used to start my traditional illustrations... I grid-ed that bastard!

I'm back in Kendo for most of this week but will try to squeeze in some work here and there.

You can click on the image to view high res version (it looks a little weak sauce where I stitched it together... I have dinky scanner and my sketchbook was too big )

Rebecca - Awesome start!
