myra like degas . . .
You may have heard somewhere that I like the ballet paintings and drawings of Degas. I have long loved this Degas sketch (photo #2). What I attempted to do in my sketch was to substitute my face for the face of the ballerina (now I'm lying). I did the best I could with my limited skill set but boy oh boy was it fun!!
Also, I need to go back and number my ballerina series. What number is this one? I think I am going to put numbers on them like JM's apples. Her artistic way of numbering her apple series is just too cute!
Finally, I am thinking about getting one of those art projectors as a learning tool. I would like to use one as an aid to help me 'see' objects better. I would also practice tracing objects in order to learn how to draw them more accurately.
