Sketchbook Project #24: Modigliani
So this is the 24th image I have drawn, painted, sketched since beginning this "Sketchbook Project," and finally I have one I like.
This is a Modigliani, entitled, "Woman from Algiers." I love the way he did noses and necks; but in his painting of this woman it almost lookslike he lost his concentration on that left eye, or the woman's right eye. In my copy, I tried to emulate rather than improve because that would represent the apex of any thoughts of grandeur on my part; and I'm sure it would totally piss Modigiliani off as well.
This was a fun sketch, and it was equally fun to put some color on the inked page.
