Yannick Bourgeois | From Painting to Drawing
Yannick Bourgeois was born in Paris. He currently lives in Rome. One of his favorite hobby is drawing. He draws with crayons. Yannick particularly portraits and select his models from the works of legendary painters.
“The idea came to me after discovering Rome Raffaelo Sanzio, whose style in his fresco painting is characterized by a graphic style and colors very near those used in drawing. I concentrate on facial features. I prefer to draw emotions and that I try and stick with better the original.
Draw (in this case reproduce) requires to be determined in detail. however I don’t pass over a few hours on a portrait, and I stopped as soon as the end result appears satisfactory. These are real challenges, some painters lend themselves more readily than others to the transposition painting / drawing.”
