ODS #41 The sublime Andrea Del Sarto

I am in awe of Andrea del Sarto. His painting are simply sublime as are his drawings.

He is not one of the most well-known artists of the Renaissance, maybe,  because he died in 1530, at the fairly young age of 44, struck down by the bubonic plague, or, may be, because he was not into big drama like some of his more famous contemporary  Florentine artist were. Luckily for us, during his brief existence, he created many beautiful panting and drawings with which he still communicates with us.

With this Open Drawing Session, I want to pay homage to this elegant artist of the Italian Renaissance, during this 2:30 hours session, we will be copying  his portrait of a young man executed in charcoal on lightly toned paper.

All the subjects depicted in Andrea’s drawings and paintings  are compelling and absolutely fascinating, his main concern was to capture not just their physiognomy but also, we can say most of all, their mood, their humanity, their individual essence, as the portrait of a young man  we will be copying very well demonstrates.

All you need for this session is tan toned paper, charcoal in pencils and sticks in hard, medium and soft gradations, kneaded eraser and sandpaper to sharpen your charcoal sticks.
