|Bargue Plate Torso|
On the right is my drawing of the Bargue Plate. This is the third Plate I have drawn and they will only get better as I do more.... and that is the point. Fastidiously coping Bargue Plates has been a painstaking exercise for serious artists since the development of a drawing system by Charles Bargue in the 1800's. Thank you Ben Winspear for introducing me to the Atelier methods.
