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!
