I’ll give you a hint. He liked to paint curvy women. No teenage nymphs for this guy.
When I was working on this study I thought this hat is too much. did he really wear a hat that partially blocked his vision and then have to tilt his head back to see? Or is that only how he looks in this statue. I thought he seems kind of snobby. In the future, whenever I see one of his paintings, I’ll always wonder if he was really all about that hat.
This is my second try. If I transfer this to another paper and try again I could make some corrections and it would come out better, but I don’t want to. This is only a practice sketch so that my portrait drawing can improve.
