Detail of the ear where the drawing is clearly visible and is painted in color

ears


Curiosity:
Marc Restellini extract from a report by him will give a deeper comprehension of the private expert way of working:

marcrestellini

Translation:
The ears: When they are left exposed in female portraits (rare), they are not detailed. Even in the portraits of men, they are not the object of so much detail.

Exactly the opposite to this case, the ear even if just a part is full in details, as detailed as the eyes or the hair...

The painting is done in a reused canvas
