More information about Raphael can be found Here:
1.How do we know Raphael's Paintings were so meticulously created?
2. Why doesn't Raphael always care that the anatomy of his figures isn't 100% accurate?
3. Who was one of Raphael;s main inspirations in his artwork, and how did hi assimilate other's works into his own?
Also I was going to go deeper into his death for this artist spotlight because I was curious why he died to young. I figured it was something medical, and that field interests me so I did a quick google search and thought I had better do this topic, but I am still going to link an article about it just because I thought it was really funny.
You have to scroll down past the giant painting of Raphael on his death bed holding a woman's hand to get to the funny part.
For my art class, we are creating larger "replicas" of old-master's drawings to help use better our understanding of the human figure, proportion, and to give us exposure to new media.
I am replicating a sketch by Raphael called "Female figure with a Tibia, and Ornamental Studies(recto); Ornamental Studies(verso)" and it was creating in pen and brown ink(dip pens). I started the drawing aspect of the replication process on Monday, October 8, 2018. But I didn't take update pictures until today(the 10th). I took the picture before I added anything to the drawing, and I didn't really add anything today because I was trying to figure out the medium. I have pictures of that too, but the product is less pleasing to the eye.
I am a sleep deprived artist trying to make ends meet. :)
