Works created during my studies at the Academy of Realist Art.
The Portrait was made after a photo reference just for practicing in
charcoal at the Academy of Realist Art.
(Visit this photographer website: http://www.piskaryov.com). It was a great experience
and I took a lot of pleasure doing it while learning the medium.
Medium: Generals Charcoal, Farbriano Artistico white paper.
Anne de Bretagne. Mortuary statue or so-called "le gisant" of Anne de Bretagne
(Anne of Brittany), queen to two successive French kings, Charles VIII and Louis XII.
Done last year as a programm assignment at the Academy of Realist Art. Took an awfully long time to complete -
something around 100 hours of work, but I'm very pleased with the result.This a copy after Charles Bargue.
Medium: graphite pencil on Stonehendge Pearl Gray paper.
