    Woweee! Great choice Em! Amazing portrait.
    Really nice progress thus far! Tell me you are going to add in that bold stroke of hair in the top left; it's a real nice focal accent I think

    Thanks for posting your Bargue studies in your SB! It has been very educational to watch the drawings progress and observe your methods. It certainly can be a challenge to achieve those very subtle tonal variations with gradual graphite/charcoal washes rather then a stomp or brush- but I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who went that route. And good start on your Fechin copy, I'll be keeping an eye on its progress!

    Looks good Emily, You make it look easy. How important is it that you use similar materials as the artists your copying when you are trying to learn new techniques? I noticed that you were working on a smooth paper, and I think Fecin worked on a textured paper. I was just wondering how far that's stressed? It's looking amazing so far, keep up the great work!

    RebeccaK--wow, so glad you like Fechin! His drawings are very sensitive, and I'm learning a lot about that as I do this copy.
    Idiot Apathy--thanks! I'm actually waiting on that piece of hair...not sure if it was part of the original drawing or not?
    bumskee--I don't know, I guess people feel compelled after seeing all these photos of me.
    bhanu--thank you! Glad you like it.
    reidaj--thanks for your comments! I like what you've posted in your sketchbook, as well.
    Bojee--I think he used vine charcoal on textured paper. I'm using a charcoal pencil on lightly textured paper. So it's similar, but not exactly the same.

    Here's some photos just for fun. Didn't make a ton of progress on the Fechin drawing today--watched Bill paint instead. I'll have an update on it next time.

    Emily, that's so cool! I hope you're getting paid for all the advertising you're doing for Bill.

    is it just me or does that place look extremely clean? I am guessing you just clean the bits you take pics of and the other side is like a whole mountain of art stuff.. err.. maybe not bottle of powerade!!

    I am amazed....that I missed this sketchbook....Mind if I add it? The studies are simply fantastic, shading is surreal, and your process and methods are to reckoned with....

    MOAR!!

    What an awesome opportunity to work and train with Mr. Whitaker- I am quite envious of those giant windows in his studio!

    What a coicidence, I was just pouring over a Nicolai Fechin book for the first time yesterday! I was actually quite fond of that particular drawing too.

    I'm curious though. Bill Whitaker lives in Provo right? Are you still doing any life drawing studies like you were earlier, or are you working up to that? I believe they don't have undraped models at BYU, and that the students have to drive over to Springville to get their undraped model life drawing. Or would Bill just do that sort of thing in his studio? I'm just wondering because I've found it hard to get some decent life drawing here in Utah. I live in St. George, and I drive up to SUU in Cedar City weekly to get my undraped life drawing on.

    Rebeccak--hehe, I think I'm getting the better end of the deal.
    bumskee--well, part of the reason it looks so clean is because the studio is brand new! Construction was finished just a little while ago and finishing touches are being done now.
    Stark--sure, and thank you!
    Idiot Apathy--lol
    reidaj--the windows are wonderful, and one of the most important things to having good working conditions, I think.
    WillSchnevel--hmm, the place I used to work provided life drawing for us once a week and Springville and Provo Art & Frame also have figure drawing. Yeah, Bill's in Provo...not sure what he does as he hasn't had a model over in the new studio yet.

    Ok, here's something just for fun. Me sitting next to the easel. See my nice, comfy chair?
