Nevertheless we should sometimes take a step back into earlier times of art to learn from the old masters.
Often we forget them, we are bored of their works before we even look at it, because we are used to them. We saw them hundret of times in the museum, schoolbooks or documentaries.
But the medieval masters of art can teach us alot, especially when we take a look on how they sketch and start a artwork.
Here three of the greatest artist from medieval time and some of their sketches.
I tried to describe their techniques as good as I cold so you can try them yourself

"Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found.I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love. Why Bilbo Baggins? Perhaps because I am afraid, and he gives me courage." - Gandalf.|
