Artist's description:

A study of a Sienese wooden Polychromed stucco Madonna in the Museo Bardini, Florence. The statue is in all ways beautiful - petite and perfect in proportion - about a metre high, extremely delicate, with perfect flowing linear contours to every detail. I was particularly taken by the profile, which reminded me of Picasso's classical drawings where the forehead merges with the line of the nose. This drawing was done standing, clutching my sketchpad to my chest for support, and took several hours. At one point I was surrounded by a class of schoolboys all bustling round me attempting to see wha I was drawing. I kept on going :-)

Materials used:

Pencil on Fabriano Paper, mounted with burgundy card passe-partout

Sienese Madonna (1978)
