#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.
