    regarding master studies

    Hello, I've been getting into color as of recent and was wondering how to best manage my time in order to improve as quickly as possible. I'm mainly thinking that doing master copies/quick color studies and just basic rendering from life would help the most. So to start should I mainly just work from life the most and only mess with master copies after I've built a bit more confidence with brush work etc or should I do an even balance of both? Is there anything else I should be doing? Thanks

    I would work from life more than from masters, but study master works beforehand. There is much to learn from masters, and it would be foolish to try and start from scratch, but they got to where they were by painting from life. Look to the masters for inspiration on how to handle certain materials, lighting, and especially mood and composition, but apply what you learn there to studies from life.
