Improved Master Study Sketch of "The Cicada" by Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot...



"The Cicada" by Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot is one of my favorite paintings at the Norton Simon Museum and I intend for it to be my next master study painting.  I posted this sketch last week, but I've redrawn the hands.  I think they are now much closer in size now to how they should be.  My next choice is to decide what size to do the painting.  The original is not one of our standard sizes so I'm going to have to play around with this in photoshop to determine what will fit the proportions best.
