    Some would say that when doing copies if you're not working in the same or similar method to the original artist, the value of the exercise is limited. They reason that the very qualities that make a painting worth emulating are a result of the method used in painting them. For example, the sharp, detailed, rich quality of a Van Eyck - painted on oak panel, in a series of oil rich layers superiimposed over each other, on a bright ground - cannot be reproduced on coarse canvas, with one layer of opaque paints and turpentine on a medium grey toned ground. A cool halftone created by scumbling flesh tone over an umber shadow is different than the same done in solid paint.

    Of course, one can study the masters with a different goal in mind such as value or color composition, in which case simple broad paint studies can be done

    Such nice, nice copies! Here is mine, life size drawing after Michelangelo's Giuliano tomb (Guiliano head)! Sorry if you already saw it. This is a cast drawing, @ 90 hours ish (over a period of six months). No other photos, it sold so quickly at a gallery I didn't have a moment to get a better capture!

    Hey, I'm new to these forums (not entirely true since ive been lurking round here for months, just not actually posting anything) but I came across this thread and decided that it was about time i started contributing somewhat. So I thought id be a bit more ambitionus than usual and so started on my first master copy, by Raphael, called the Study of Adam.

    On the subject, does anyone else here use a ruler and measurements to plot out the reference points for the copy, or is it likely to decrease the value gained from the excercise (I'm almost completely self taught so I dont really know which is the right answer). Either way, It's a bit late now, but I found It helped a lot, not just in plotting out the basic framework, but in analysing the way Rapahel did it in the first place. Having seen him at first glance, it seemed quite heavy going, with lots of musculature and twisting, but I see now that in fact its a lot more delicate and flowing. All the joints (certainly in this piece anyway) are in line with eacother or follow the same curve - even as far as the neck.

    Hopefully Ill be able to take a phot and pst it up here in a couple of days when its finished, though to the hige amounts of A-Level homework at the moment im not sure ill be able to finish it so soon.

    Foggle. Why not try one each way? I think this is to be a learning experience. I know I used a ruler on the Kandinsky copy, but mostly for a straight edge. I also kind of eyeball measured the piece from my bench, holding the ruler toward the painting while I decided how to cut the paper to dimensions approximating the piece. They'll definitely pay attention to what you are doing down at the museum. If you are doing this at home you don't have to worry as much about the security guards getting concerned. Why not figure out how everything is connected?

    Well, after a busy few days, I finally managed to finish it. It's a copy from Raphael's "Study of Adam" (apologies if the photo's a bit a dodgy)
