W. Bouguereau ref/drawing. Jan G


Hi Matt,

Hope you are well.  I have to say this is a pretty poor rendition of your excellent drawing of William Bouguereau.  I struggled with the beard for sure, this was even more difficult than doing a white beard.  Was having difficulty in seeing the detail in the photo so tried to follow along with you.  However you make it all look so effortless when for me it’s really hard.  Also think my values must be off because my whites have ended up looking muddy.  In all honesty I rushed this piece which has let me down but decided to put it in anyway as there’s always something I can learn from you.  Many thanks
