St. Peter, 7″ x 5″ charcoal on paper

Here is a quick study of Michelangelo’s St. Peter. The introverted St. Peter, reflective and somber was a great way for me to recently dust off my large sketchbook and charcoal sticks and get back to studying the masters, paying close attention to Michelangelo. I drafted this piece here as a quick warm up.
I think his work has been the most influential on my development as an artist, and he’s been the best teacher I’ve ever had.
