Anything painted directly, on the spot, always has a strength, a power, a lively touch that is lost in the studio. Your first impression is the right one. Stick to it and refuse to budge.
- Eugene Boudin
Nothing makes me so happy as to observe nature and to paint what I see.
- Henri Rousseau

Robert Liberace

Posted by Charley Parker at 7:43 am

Robert Liberace
Robert Liberace’s drawings show his devotion to the study of anatomy and his enthusiasm for Renaisance art.

He starts his drawings by creating a middle ground with a watercolor wash. He works the masses of the figure with Conte crayons and the details with terra cotta or charcoal pencils. He pulls the highlights by erasing the watercolor base or adding white chalk. His drawings occasionally show a fascination with progression of the figure through space: multiple studies on one sheet showing the course of motion.

Liberace teaches anatomy and advanced figure drawing in Virginia and travels to Florence and Rome to study classical art.
