Last week’s critique included that wonderful Leyendecker. I spent some time trying to summon the ghost of Leyendecker. Got out my Ipad and started drawing. First is a screen grab of your new model. (incredibly handsome) I used photo as a base layer.
Then I used a fellow artist’s photo for another try.
Then a third, from imagination…
How do you think he painted those images? Colored ground, I think. Gouach, I think. A thousand paintings before.
