Ode to Juan Sanchez Cotan
So here's my other class project. We're supposed to select a master's work and do a drawing based on their work. So I selected Juan Sanchez Cotan because I used to stand in front of this painting at the Chicago Museum of Art all the time. Something about it constantly drew me to it. The painting is in oil pastel - WAY out of my box! It is varnished, so there's a shine that is reflecting into the camera so the image didn't come out very well. It is titled "Cotan's Chicken Soup" - with a rubber chicken, of course!
