Fellow blogger Granny Annie at Fools Rush In has been participating in a 29 Faces Challange where you draw a face a day for February. I think it would behoove you to check out her work.
Since I'm on my own this weekend, I thought I'd look for some of my drawings from the past... back before marriage and kids, back before social media, back when I had time to myself and I found this assignment for my Humanities class. We were tasked to take a famous painting, copy it, and then write a paper about the artist's intention.
This is Mastisse's The Dance:
And this is my reproduction of Matisse's The Dance:
I've always enjoyed Fauvism, but I chose this painting because I had procrastinated myself out of doing a more realistic and detailed drawing. I would have much preferred copying something like "Lamentation Over The Dead Christ" in pencil, or "Prayer Hands" because I was more comfortable drawing detailed work in pencil and/or charcoal, but they weren't in the textbook so I picked an easy alternative: Nekkid people dancing around.
Believe me, I have grown since those college days.
