COPYING BOUGUEREAU IN CHAPEL HILL
THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2013
The photo below is the beginning of my third day copying Venus with Doves, 1879 by William Bouguereau. Many thanks to Lyn and the Ackland Art Museum in Chapel Hill, North Carolina for such a great opportunity.
I used what is believed to be Bouguereau's general palette arrangement including some historic colors such as Chinese Vermilion, Chrome yellow and even Bitumen. It was remarkable to realize how few colors he used to gain the subtle tonal variations for which he was so well known for in figure painting.
