Mark Ryan Chariker  artist bk, ny - drawings and paintings

Dunno if this is done, but im done. Chalk/pencil on toned paper.

Spent the day at the @themorganlibrary and picked up a card with Rembrandt's "Christ Before Pilate" and had to draw it. There's such a difference in how you look at a painting or drawing when you copy it. i just enjoy that kind of prolonged looking because you have to really look at everything, even the parts you aren't even into, the boring parts. That's where there's usually something you didn't expect.

sketchbook drawing from today.

i dunno what this is.

Woman with Dog and Cat. Chalk on tinted paper.

Pencil drawing from today. David and Goliath

Vija Celmins at Matthew Marks was pretty incredible. #mathewmarksgallery #vijacelmins

Copy I did today of Tiepolo's "The Agony in the Garden."

Drawing after Paul Bril's "Mountainous Landscape with a Hermit."
Black and white chalk on grey paper.

Four variations of a Dürer head.

oil on board. I cant hide im obsessed with how watteau creates atmosphere, maybe to a fault. It drives me crazy sometimes trying to figure out how he does it. Seriously how does he do it?! As far as I can tell his secrets are in the glazes. This is a white/sienna simple underpainting with a prussian green glaze over a dried burnt sienna glaze. The bottom left is the closest ive come to getting it right. #redgreencolorblind

A copy after an unknown/unattributed Italian artist from the 17th century. @themorganlibrary online collection is a great resource for artists! #morganlibrary
