"Madeline", pastel pencil on sanded paper. She is one of the most beautiful models I have worked with. I'm getting ready for my next international workshop in Seville, Spain in May (17-19). If you're interested in taking this workshop with me, please contact @craneocreacion via email for information and registration: craneocreacion@gmail.com Until then, I have a little free time to watch some Korean dramas. Do not judge! #workshop #art #drawing #pastel #pastelpencils #portrait #portraitart #realism #arteacher #artteaching ...

play_circle_filled Beatrice Cenci is safety home with me. Unwrap the painting and examine it with my friend Andy Goldberg, who is an art expert. The face of Beatrice was almost untouched, just a little bit in the corner of her left eye. Her headdress and her dress were retouched heavily (the painting must be damaged badly then). There are also a few damaged and dirty spots here and there in the background. Overall, Andy thinks the painting is in a good shape. The artist who copied this portrait based on the original done by Guido Reni in 17th century, signed as Varucca Fece, and the painting dated in 1860.
I will research about Varucca Fece, to learn a bit more about him. He might just was one of many unknown artists at that time, tried to make living by copying master's work to sell to the tourists. 
I think he did an amazing job on Beatrice's face. Her skin tone is just so beautiful. All her facial features are extremely soft, especially her nose and lips.
I love it so much - even it was just a copy from a masterpiece. Just thinking of this painting were painted almost 160 years ago, and now it's mine!.
