I drew this one back when I was
the University of Michigan School of Art. Professor Ted Ramsay had us
do a couple of Old Masters copies. I chose a drawing of Le Roi Louis by
Maurice Quentin de la Tour. It is a stroke for stroke copy (as best I
could from an image out of a book), and for a while it was pretty much
perfect, but then I learned why you don't spray fixative on a pastel.
It wet the surface with drops that created a spotty look.
Unfortunately, this is the only photo I have of the drawing
before the damage. It still looks good on my mom's livingroom wall, but
it doesn't have the power it did when I made it.
