Bouguereau Study by gabbyd70 Bouguereau Study by gabbyd70
Study of a piece by Bouguereau for art class. :)
Very fun to draw. I always learn a lot when I try drawing from master works. It's great for learning.

For this I used grey pastel pencils and chalks, charcoal, and white charcoal. Took 3-4 hours time.

Thanks for looking!

I love Bouguereau! He's paintings aren't as lively as I'm usually drawn to, but they're remarkably beautiful.

This really captures his work well! How did you make the pencil strokes look like paint? I was amazed. I thought this was black and white paint or even digital.

thank you! :) I used black, grey, and white pastels, so it's sort of like paint I guess. More so than pencil at least :)

I always get it all over my hands and it smears on everything :/

The arm seems very small compared to the rest of her torso, That's my opinion I'd like to see the orginal. Everything else is awesome though.
