Sketches after Sargent


I have a tendency to accidently chop of the bottoms of the paintings I'm copying. In this one, called Fumee D'Ambre Gris, there's supposed to be an incense burner at the girl's feet.



In the painting, called Carolus-Duran, the subject is seated and bracing his right arm on his right leg. But, once again, I ran out of room. If you think the the hair-do and neck tie are a blast from the past you should have seem the shirt cuffs!

Ah, to heck with bottoms! Who needs them anyway!

Great drawings Kim, I like the man one the best, I don't know why though.

Oh ya, I LOVE Emily's painting in her room, it's perfect! Thanks so much for doing that for her!!! I don't even think Pippy's jealous!

You don't know why?! I'll tell you why...SEXY MOUSTACHE!

As much as I love the moustache my favorite is the woman. There is something so peaceful and spiritual about the original painting. I'll try to find a link to the original so you can see.

Hmmm, it's not letting you see it either? I'll just snag a copy then.
