Arrow Open Figure Drawing Workshop - William Bouguereau Master Copy - with Rebeccak 014



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

This workshop is open to any medium and any style. Some informal moderation
will be gladly provided by Rebecca Kimmel ~ however, the purpose of the
Workshop is for Artists to interact with and informally critique one anotherís work.

Due to the popularity and outstanding success of last week's first Master Copy Workshop, we will be continuing this week with another Master Copy Workshop!
This week we will be working from a choice of 2 new Master Paintings 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.

Choice 1: (See below for links)

William Bouguereau (1825-1905)
Nymphes et Satyre [Nymphs and Satyr]
Oil on canvas, 1873
102 1/4 x 70 3/4 inches (260 x 180 cm)

Choice 2: (See below for links)

La Vague [The Wave]
Oil on canvas, 1896
47 5/8 x 63 1/8 inches (121 x 160.5 cm)

Hmmmmm. I will give this one a shot after I watch the Nba all-star game

I have been absent from the figure drawing thread for a while now.
Hopefully I did not get dropped from the class.

Roberto and Matellis,

Welcome aboard!

Matellis, you basically choose one of the photos above, and yes, make a copy. The purpose is to increase your ability to draw and paint the figure representationally. You may choose to adapt the painting, but I generally prefer that if someone (not necessarily you) is a beginner, that they try to faithfully reproduce the painting so as to increase their skill. Having said that, in no way do I or any other participants here dictate style, etc., so as long as your interpretation is not inappropriate, you are free to use the Reference as you wish.

Cheers, and good luck!

~Rebeccak
