Daily Drawing, 4/25/16. After Giotto, "Lamentation," 1304 - 1306.
Giotto brought humanity, emotion and a keen expressiveness to all his work. It is hard to believe that he was doing all of this during the early 1300's - but not as hard to realize that he was a towering influence in his time period and far beyond. I can think of few masters that would be better to make transcriptions from for the human form, composition, painting and the drawing that underlies all of his work. He was an extraordinary artist and I am definitely inviting him into my studio and into my practice.
