Degas déjà vu: Ballerinas

Copying Degas’ beautiful ballerinas drawings was a lot of fun, and so many of you expressed the desire to copy some more, that I decided to offer a second drawing session dedicated to this great master of light, motion, and grace.

During this 2:30-hour session, we will copy two works by Degas: the first is a quick sketch that will permit us to warm up a bit and learn to capture the essence of a subject with a few essential strokes of graphite or charcoal.

The second work is a drawing in graphite or charcoal and white chalk on toned paper: a very basic but elegant and effective technique to capture the light and the sense of volume of this graceful subject.
