Hello boys and girls! I was inspired by LeSean this week. Paradoxically, I have come out of it with a study of a very static and super-rendered man. The super rendering went pretty super I think, but the poor man's midsection has sort of collapsed in on itself and gone all stodgey, and is all out of place at the back.
I went with my mum to the Gallery of NSW the other day, it's a wonderful place. They have original Rubens' and Raphaels, and the work of a man named Lord Frederic Leighton. Simply amazing, and it reminded me that all one has to do to be studio mates with these guys is to go there, witness for a few hours, and go home and pick up a pencil. I find myself comparing the line I'm drawing to the ones I saw hours before, and that can only be a really, really good thing.
P.S. Noone told me Michaelangelo was so mean to Leonardo DaVinci. I could smack that guy.
