This was the torso of the aforementioned Dutch aristo. I loved how the drapery practically melted off his shoulders.
Now for a few fashion sketches. I'm clearly out of practice...
I picked up this jerkin for £3 from a rather expensive Oxfam in Covent Garden. It's 100% Danish wool and is the perfect layering piece.
Just a quick post there. When I finally get a break over Christmas I'm going to try to sketch a bit more, and I'll definitely be heading back to the NPG.
I hope you're all enjoying the festive period, I can't wait to head home tomorrow!
