Y2D30 and endrawings

by Sketchy on the Detail

I stopped by the Young Dürer exhibition at the Courtauld Gallery this evening on the way to meet a friend. It was very interesting, and he has a way of shading as if he was etching and not drawing. So I decided to give it a go on the Mielich downstairs. It’s not as easy as one would think, especially if it is your natural tendency to shade first, then outline…but there is something to be gained by copying the old masters, if only practice and composition.
