Drawing Studies of Tiepolo Murals

January 17, 2010

(Sorry for all the updates. I’m having formatting problems…)

Here’s something a little different. I dug up these two old studies from storage today. They’re based on a book I had (now lost unfortunately) of artwork by the great 18th century Venetian artist, Giambattista Tiepolo. Both are around ten years old, in pencil.

Apotheosis of Spain

From Gesuati Ceiling

The first drawing (8.5×11″) is a detail from his Apotheosis of Spain mural, and the other (11×14″) is from the Gesuati ceiling. He has always been one of my favorite artists.
