Bronzino study

Another visit at Art Journal Journey

As I'm working with portraits by the old masters I surely have to add another blog post with a portrait I have done lately.
Here is a study of a portrait by Bronzino his birth name was Agnolo di Cosimo (November 17. 1503 - November 23. 1572) but he was known as Il Bronzino probably referring to his complexion. More information from wikipedia.

The animals are drawn after photos from Valerie Jael. Thank you very much for the permission to use some of your photos as references!

This is a work in progress and it will be a present for a friend, who appreciates my art very much.

Have a great week!


  1. Hi Ilona, you have made me very happy with this! Love what you have made, and feel honoured that you were able to use some of my photos! Thanks for joining us at Art Journal Journey with this beautiful contribution! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Boah.. ich bin begeistert Ilona und ich freu mich so dass Du Valerie's schöne Vogelfotos verwertet hast! Das ist einfach super!
