Bargue plates continued

Well, it's funny how some of the Bargue drawings are easier and/or more of a pleasure than others - and not necessarily the ones you'd expect (plate 1, "Eyes" is a  pain!). What I have found is, that my personal bests were plates 30-40 - and from plate 41 on I can't seem to get them even basically right!! I've got a number of questions about this type of master drawing copying - my own basic idea was not to be too obsessive, "eyeball" as much as possible, and spend 2 - 4 hours on each one (which is extremely short for this type of work). Maybe my 'approach' is completely wrong  - mebbe that's why the roaring 40's are not working!
