I've been in a deep slump this year, hence the large gap since my last post. However, I'm back with renewed determination and summer plans for continuing with Bargue as well as starting to learn watercolour. This plate is of Julia Mammaea. Unfortunately, the contour of the face is off, probably a reflection of the stressed circumstances under which I've been very slowly chipping away at this plate, since before this plate I had been steadily improving. Resuming Bargue should go smoothly henceforth.
