Budapest, Hungary #137

Budapest is the crown jewel of the river Danube. She is a magnificent cosmopolitan city, the capital of Hungary in Central Europe. The river Danube divides the hills of Buda and the plain of Pest. You can walk  hours to discover the Royal Castle in Buda or the boulevards, avenues and squares of Pest.

Here are a couple of pictures just to get an idea about the magic of this wonderful metropolis.

#314 David

I enjoy studying old master drawings and academies. After practicing on a dozen Charles Bargues plates I bought a bust of Michelangelo’s David at a flea market and drew my first plaster cast in my little basement studio. Made the transition from 2 dimension to 3 dimension.

I utilized the sight-size method taught in the french ateliers in the 19th century. It took 9 hours over the course of 2 days .  I used Nitram HB charcoal on 18X24″ Strathmore paper.

Any critiques or comments are welcome.
