Weimin  says

‘I spent an hour and a half in the print room to study Raphael’s original drawing. I tried to draw the same size as the original and I presume Raphael might have spent no more than 1.5 hours to complete the two portraits and the two pair of hands. It was not an easy task to draw this great work in such limited time and this was my second attempt. I’ll do an online workshop to analyse the techniques of Raphael’s masterpiece. Next week I will work on Michelangelo’s drawings, on 3rd March will draw Rubens. There should be a few places available. If you or your friends are interested please click the links below.
