Collateral study exercises

Edgar Degas – Giovanna Bellelli


These days I’m doing some additonal work with an exercises from Robert Kaupelis’ “Experimental Drawing”.

I chose this image because I spontaneously liked it: it represents Giovanna Bellelli, Edgar Degas’ cousin, in a charcoal sketch. I am supposed to “live and fall in love with it” for a few days and , of course, I have to introduce her to my family and friends. I will write my conclusions in a few days but in the meantime your thoughts and feelings are worth more than a penny for me. 🙂

(The picture comes from Pinterest, since I had a hard time finding it with the referenced online libraries.)
