Today’s Work on the Holbein

I made revisions today to the Holbein and I am happy with the direction it is going in the initial outline. The charcoal is really hard for me and I have been struggling with it a lot. I did just at the end of my session tonight feel a moment of fondness for it when I was starting to suggest more subtle areas in the drawing.  I think I keep trying get it to act like graphite and it just isn’t going to play that way. Long way to go…

I love the expression on this Lady’s face. IO imagine what it must have been like to have been a woman during the Tudor era. Dignified, a little distant… and a little sad. Her expression enchants me. If I can capture that, that is all I want.
