Cezanne drawing at Moma
If you are in the Mew York area, I highly recommend checking out the Cezanne Drawing exhibit at the MOMA. It shows the studies Cezanne drew to practice his craft and prepare to paint his oil paintings.
His process was actually similar to comics art, as he began with pencil sketches before moving on to inbox and watercolors. And— @buddyscalera —he even used photo reference.
Anyway, it’s a fascinating exploration of the practice of a great artist. I highly encourage all creatives to check it out.
