Master Copy


Here's my attempt at replicating Sorolla's 'Boy with Ball' for Jason Bowen's figure painting course.  More of an interpretation than a copy, really.  In true beginner fashion I used two photo references that looked nothing like one another and wound up with a painting that looks a lot different than the original.  Nice!  I've found that when working with oil I spend at least two thirds of my time correcting mistakes in color and paint application.  As much as I struggle with oil, I think that its a wonderful medium and I'm looking forward to the next project.

This is one of my favorite pieces of yours! Hope your summers going good. I'm looking for a new place right now and it is NOT going well.
