after John Singer Sargent

Tamara Karsavina in the role of Thamar
Henry James
Sir William Blake Richmond
Today I drew studies from Sargent's (my fave artist) book of Portraits. I was focusing on the strokes he used to block in large areas vs. when he used a single simple line. I didn't intend to slavishly copy them, just learn from them. Now I have a much better understanding of drawing eyes!
