Peter Paul Rubens' Clara
The drawing
My copy of Peter Paul Ruben's charming portrait of his daughter, Clara. Step 1. My main objective at this stage is an accurate drawing. The lines are the remnants of the vine charcoal grid I used to position the head. The drawing was done in Winsor & Newton's Vandyke Brown, a transparent brown with a yellowish undertone.
