    1. Begin the master study from the image above. Studies are to be in full colour. Be faithful to the master study. Do not use the colour picker. Do not trace. This is an exercise that over time will pump up your skills very quickly.
    2. Make your study and the master work the same size. This makes it easier for you and others to critique. Do not make it hard for yourself
    3. Upload your finished study directly in a reply to today's thread. Every now and then will have it's own thread with the image of the day.
    4. Time limit - 1 Hour minimum at least. This is the minimum to get the full benefit, but you're welcome to put a lot more time into it. The longer you can spend on it, the better you will get.
    5. Try to see how the artist worked and bring this into your study. Match the colour and the shapes in broad strokes, leave details out unless you have the time later. Go from the largest shapes of colour first. Fingernails and eyelashes should be ignored to the end.
    6. Work on a small format, this stops you making those details and enables you to capture the essence. You can make it bigger later.

    Please post your image side by side with the original, either next to eachother or on top of each other. This makes it easier for people to see and critique.

    You may not wish to do a study everyday, but work on one over several days.This can make you push yourself harder.

    Critique from yourself and others is always welcomed here, as we are here to improve. Comment on what you think you've learnt from doing the study, where it failed, worked and what you will take forward to the next one.

    Please try to research the artist, their paintings & techniques as learning art history is equally important.

    Post it next to the source. It helps us and you to see the differences. She needs to be stretching forward more and her flesh warmer. Do more.

    What a beautiful painting! There's a lot of color eye trickery here; colors that you could swear are one color, but then realize it is another because of what is next to it. 1hr.

    Yea colors are influenced what is next to it, as for critique you could add those bit cooler grays in skin, but pretty good for start. More you do easier it gets ;)

    I’ve been doing master studies from this thread for a few years now, but never bothered to post. Today I thought I’d change that.
