The most challenging subject for me to paint is drapery. If I had studied in a classical atelier, I would have had months of study and practice of painting cloth. Alas, being self taught, its the one thing I ignored, thinking it a boreing subject. Not So!!!! Again, if it seems too complex, I make myself focus on just the form and getting the folds and creases into position. Then I go back and take a small part at a time, and really get into refining it until I have convincing fabric.
