Wednesday, January 2, 2019 - Other People’s Art No. 1

An important part of a drawing practice is looking at other people’s art.  Not just copying from the masters, although that is extremely valuable, but trying to figure out how they did what they did.  From time to time I will be posting pages from my sketchbook that document that process.

Here is the original piece by Picasso:
