A poorly done Poorly Casanova
So here is this week's Master Study. Poorly Casanova as promised. I had soooo much fun with this one. This really is the direction I want to take my personal work while developing more commercial fantasy styles. Artists like Hale, Foster and even Fortune have such an emotional energy to their work that I can't get enough. The study took 20 minutes of drawing, and 1.5 hours of painting on 8x10 canvas. Again, rather than striving for exact detail, I wanted to capture the color resonance of the work. A good call as the original is a whopping 38x70!!! I call this one a success.
