Leonardo study

Garment study for a seated figure.
Leonardo da Vinci.
Italian Renaissance, born 1452- 1519
Charcoal, pen and ink, between 1470 and 1484.
Musee du Louvre, Paris, France

After Leonardo.
This study I have always admired. Just an amazing play of light and shade across that material. The depth and dimension is wonderful.
Drapery has always found a way into my work. And after this study it has inspired me to included it more often as an element. I certainly have gained much from the effort.
12 x 14 inches, charcoal on paper.
