Jules Breton was famous for his portrayal of peasants.

I found Jules Breton’s painting of a peasant woman at Hoakley’s The Eclectic Light Company blog.  I made a quick drawing of the woman’s head on a sheet where earlier I had made a little drawing after a face by Ingres.

  1. thank you, Rosie. I love the sense of connection I get when I make drawings after these old artists. The head of Breton’s painting of the peasant woman has such powerful structure. I was trying to get a bit of that in my drawing. I like to learn from copying.
