Well this week I took another crack at my old nemesis, the 15th century wooden carving of St. Luke the Evangelist from Flanders.  As I’ve mentioned in the past it has a really weird forced perspective that I’ve yet to get right… but I keep trying.

This one went pretty well. I tried working from a different angle than usual that paid off. I also had the benefit of a chair this time. Seattle Art Museum’s medieval collection are in a hallway and I generally prefer not to get in the way of traffic, but since this was a week day right before closing I decided to chance it.

I got rushed in the end and I screwed up on the proportions which i managed to fix by redrawing the head, but otherwise this is one of my better attempts.
