    Works from the last 3 years of studies at Angel Academy of Art (

This is a study from a plaster cast. These take "as long as it takes", to make them perfect, in this case about 160 hours. The illusion really works, looking at the original it feels like the real thing hangs on the wall. Fun! :D

This is a "Bargue Drawing" study. We take a master drawing and copy it, continuing to work until it's flawless to train visual perception and manual control of the medium.
