Bouguereau Study by gabbyd70 Bouguereau Study by gabbyd70
This is an assignment for my portrait class that I drew. We were to pick an artist that we find inspiring and copy one of their portrait works. I chose Bouguereau, I think his works are incredible. :D

Drew this with charcoal and soft pastels on 18" x 24" charcoal drawing paper. Really enjoyed it :)
