after-corot

Today I made a fast drawing after Corot’s portrait of Laure Sennegon (plus tard Mme Baudot).  I have been thinking of all the ways I might recharge my batteries, and certainly one of the ways is to restudy works that I love.

My daughter decided to do a version of the Corot portrait also.  Hers shows more of an indebtedness to Matisse.  Also, as you can see, she chose an interesting if ephermeral medium for her drawing.

  1. Cool, your daughter’s drawing captures the same expression as yours. Is it a kind of haughtiness, like the subject has a minor annoyance? Compare and contrast, a fascinating exercise.
