Working on it

Progress on Mr. Big has been slow, but I've learned a lot

When I started, I had no idea how to enlarge a drawing to scale. I just made it up as I went along, and learned a great deal.

But, piano, piano, as the Italians say. A little bit at a time and he comes along.

Having a DEUCE of a time with the modeling on the back of his knee. As you can see...

So, to keep my brain from exploding in frustration, I took a little break and sketched a copy of this painting, with the thought that I could figure out the nice little jacket she's got on and maybe copy it in linen. Only with less frilly stuff, obviously.

You are making very nice progress. I also really like the painting you are sketching.
