My next copy is based on a DaVinci study for The Battle Of Anghiari. One of the challenges in this one for me is the many values in it. Another is that it's a face (yikes !). I find faces very difficult to do. I have a hard time getting proportions right, correct angles, and the proper relationships between the various features. So, this one seemed like a good one for me. DaVinci did so many faces - many of them quite monstrous. I'm thinking that at some point I will do some of them. So, here is my reference photo, followed by my initial go at it.
the world of ideas is also changing
