Second Plate of the Bargue Course

Starting the second plate of the Bargue course tonight. I found this to be much more enjoyable.

I thought that this plate would be much harder but I really enjoyed doing this plate much more than the first. This was much closer to drawing from an actual face rather than just a drawing. I tried as hard as I could to make the lines as exact as possible.

The Setup


Drawing Comparison


This is how I began the drawing, unfortunately the line of the bridge of the nose was off and that difference continued through  to the end drawing. I used the Bargue guide on the left only as a possible indicator to how to begin the drawing but I found my own path.


I’m very pleased with the accuracy here, even though the bridge of the nose and the ends of the mouth are off a bit.
