My 20th copy - another portrait by Durer.

Copy n19, Durer's self-portrait. It has been my favourite old masters' painting for a long time.

That looks super cool to me, like a photo!
Another copy of Wyeth, don't know the name of the painting, found it in Google Pictures.
The copy took me some awful lot of time, maybe like 4 hours or more. The reason I like this picture is that...

I chose this particular painting because of the beautiful combination of balance and...

Jason Manley, thank you for your patience and for advice. I am honestly trying to do my best with the values... I just hope practice will help :)

Number 13, Madonna of Chancellor Rolin by Jan van Eyck.
I like the balanced composition in this painting. There is also great variety, in folds, tiles on the floor, intensity of shadows -...
No 12, Manet The Grand Canal
It was really fun to do.
I like the dynamics of this piece, the boat looks like it is actually moving.
And the background is really good, very simple yet there is...

I really admire both Repin's picture and the story behind it :) If you are interested in the...
Number 10. Turner, Totnes in the River Dart.
Hooray, half of them done :)
Want to take something very complicated with many figures next time and not get into detail.
As for this painting, the...
The last one looks cool to me :)
I couldn't arrange the whole thing with one light source and a mirror next to a PC, so I did it in watercolours.
Took me a little more than 3 hours.
1. I noticed that mass light and...
Number 9 - Wrubel.
One more painter I really admire for his style and for the great atmosphere in his works.
As for composition, I think this piece is a great example of emphasis/economy - the...
OK, one more try. I am beginning to enjoy the process. And I (finally) found a way to compare values which suits me - I just look at the 2 pictures without my glasses :)
It seems something is a bit...
I am really sorry this is taking me so long... but I'm determind to finish all 20 copies.

Copy n4 is of Roerich, and it was surprisingly difficult for me. I'm still...
Your copies are awesome, especially Fragonard and the last one!
I took a Japanese artwork this time, A Sudden Gust of Wind by Hokusai.
Spent over 3 hrs on it... definitely not happy with my speed, but I guess it's all right since I'm a newbie.
But I'm getting...
I was out of the city (and off my PC) for a couple of days, but I'm back.
Thank you very much Jason for your advice! It seems I've found a way to check the values without the 'eyedropper' tool, so...
The Composition 1.1. video is absolutely awesome, the best thing I have ever read/viewed/heard on composition.
So now I'm in the process of doing the assignment. It is quite difficult...
