Here’s the first part of the process of copying a master DaVinci drawing. You’ll see lots of planning, measuring, making mistakes, making corrections and my end result is far from perfectly exact. But the process keeps me stretching, getting better at copying exactly and just gives my eyes, hand, brain daily practice!
Next up is my hatching process- that part was super fun.
Because I pick these types of books up at used book stores, they can be old, out of print, and hard to find. You can always search for free online images of a master’s artwork to copy, as well, just look for jpgs that are at least 1000 x 1000 pixels so you can zoom in on detail without them getting blurry. Here are 3 other similar types of books that look to be available if you wish to buy your own, one of them has a kindle version for only .99cents!
