Leyendecker study

Leyendecker study of the November 1933 cover of the Saturday evening post. I love Leyendecker, a illustrator that is some what forgotten by many contemporary artist. This study was a couple of hours, well spent. Just trying to replicate how he laid down the strokes was so time consuming. Though the strokes look almost gestured and fast I think ( and I could be wrong), that each stroke he placed had so much thought on it. The way it help to describe couture and volume is incredible. The simplicity of the tones on the skin is also something that was unique to him.
Didn't quite get the likeness down on the character but man did I learn a lot.

Started cooking this one a couple of weeks ago. I had some free time tonight so after playing with the composition for a while decided to wrap it up. I was trying to stream line my process and play more with mood. something that I don't think is very strong in my work.
