Charles Lebrun master copy

One of my favorite drawings by Charles Lebrun. This was done using Prismacolor terra cotta Verithin pencil on Daler Rowney Ingres buff paper sized with amber shellac (1 part shellac to 5 parts denatured alcohol).

  1. Hello Charles
    I've been through your blog that I found very interesting and professional. I would have a question about the paper preparation with Shellac you used in some of your drawings. Maybe a stupid question, but I don't understand how you can erase the wash just to create highlights as you mentioned. It is supposed to be done during the drawing process, therefore with shellac varnish that is not easy to remove...
    Thanks for your answer
