    Right And Left by Winslow Homer

    Analysis: Homer uses a substantial amount of economy to emphasize both ducks. The secondary emphasis focuses on the subtle hunter shooting at the ducks from his canoe. There is variety in the actions of the ducks. The duck on the right appears to be shot by the hunter, while the duck on the left is in a state of panic.

    This study took me a few hours and I am trying my best to keep the duration of my studies to just an hour. I have also been using a hard brush with transfer turned on. I am hoping that these brush settings prove to be effective.

    Portrait of Professor Ivanov by Ilya Repin

    Analysis: I really enjoyed this study. Repin emphasizes Professor Ivanov with a combination of simple and complex economy using the background and chair on the left side.. The primary emphasis is on the Professor's facial expression. While the secondary emphasis is on the chair he is sitting on. There is a use of repetition in the patterns on the chair and in the shapes on the wall in the background.

    I felt I used too much of the soft brush, which gave it too much of a blurry look.

    Nice! Repin and Homer, two greats certainly. I think it's unusual how Repin cut off his hand at the bottom. It kind of adds a focal point way at the edge of the picture.

    That is a great point! I should've said in my analysis that his hand acts as a secondary emphasis. It really does stand out among all the darkness of his suit.

    Autoportrait by Renoir

    I chose this Renoir piece to admire the detail of the skin on this man's face. The Primary emphasis is, of course, the man's face due to how rendered the skin looks. The secondary emphasis is the sizeable hat that the man is wearing. I noticed the use of economy and contrast with the background and the man's suit. There is a nice use of variety with the patterns in the background.

    Portrait of a Clergyman by Albrecht Dürer

    It is evident that the light is coming from the left side. Dürer's emphasis is on the hat and the direction that the Clergyman's eyes are looking towards. The hard edges of the Clergyman's facial features attract's the viewers attention.

    Keep going. Try to put in more reference tic marks before doing the general shapes, then working smaller and smaller.
