When I was searching the internet for information about classical drawing (particularly the three crayons technique) I came across a syllabus for classical drawing at the University of Notre Dame. It was(is) for the course ”Advanced Classical Drawing” held by Professor David Mayernik. In the syllabus I could find a list of artists from the classical tradition of drawing. That is where I learned about Tiepolo.
The kind Professor pointed me to still some more old masters to study and I have now studymaterial for years to come. Thank you David!
Tiepolo, I find, has a wonderful sence of composition and he can state it so clearly with his simple, yet effective, ink washes. Many of his drawings have this balance between values too and they interact with the overall composition in a subtle way, moving the eye around and not leading the eye astray.
