La Grande Chaumière

watercolour and graphite on paper 29.8 x 21.0 cm (11.75" x 8.25")


I was drawing a week ago at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris. The Académie was founded in 1904, and has seen some well-known teachers and students.  More importantly for me, it offers daily open drawing sessions with a model.  I've only drawn there twice, both times with the same model, the one in this drawing.

Coysevox

watercolour on paper 29.8 x 21.0 cm (11.75" x 8.25")


I'm back from a month of touring France.  I managed to get a few drawings and watercolours done along the way.

This was done last Friday evening in the Louvre.  The sculpture is Mercure monté sur Pégase by Antoine Coysevox (1698).

I'm travelling for the next two or three weeks.  I probably won't be posting any new work until a few days after May 16th.

The model's right eye is too close to the nose.  Now I see it.
