I'm taking this fabulous life drawing class this semester down at Saddleback College with Cynthis Grilli. This is my mid term project. We were to copy a Vermeer from a color copy to a value drawing using vine charcoal. It was an exercise in value along with understanding spacial relationships. We drew it as if we were drawing from life by taping the copy to a wall and copying it. We could not graph it or project it. Great project for learning how to get all your line relationship to fit in a space of the same ratio. It is like a puzzle at first and then it just falls into place. I still need to put in some detail lines and darken a few areas, but I am very close to being done. Hurrah!!!
