Master studies – Bouguereau and Petrus Christus (work in progress)

Update 04-08-09: I finished the Bouguereau painting, here’s the completed version.

Update 06-19-09: The Petrus Christus study is done too.

Here are a couple of the projects I am working on right now.

Both are based on masterworks, one is “A Calling” by Bouguereau, the other by Petrus Christus, a work referred to as “Portrait of a Young Girl” or “Portrait of a Lady”, etc. I’ll post more about them separately later, probably when I am done with each. I’m painting the Bouguereau direct on canvas, no underpainting, and the Petrus Christus one is on panel and I’m using a ‘dead layer’ monochromatic underpainting (raw umber and white). Fun!
