Portrait the Second from this Second Round of Learning from the Masters: John Singer Sargent Edition.

Each of this week's drawings was taken from portraits created by the great John Singer Sargent (1856-1925).  Sargent, one of the best known American artists as well as one of the greatest portrait painters, was both commended and criticized for his ability to draw with a brush.  I settled for just trying to drew like he drew...only with a nib.
