where did you obtain the drawings of Mariano Fortuny Marsal? I would like to use them
for sight size drawings to copy. Great work on your part! People don't understand
how difficult digital painting really is. Keep it up!
I just finished reading a book about the girl with the pearl earring, and I remembered I had done this a while back. It's close, but not satifactory. The human face can be a bit difficult for me. I think to the contrast is too high in the photo as the end of her nose has washed out and dissappeared.
Sargent study, using the Sargent Brush in Painter.
Beautiful work, QT, 90 hours well spent.

"Frazetta was a master."
Is. He's not dead.
Did you see the tv special they had (TLC?) on him and his work? it was fantastic!
Frazetta is a master. I had done one copy recently myself.
Charcoal on watercolor background. (converted to b/w in photoshop)
C&C are welcome.
Miniature master copy of 'Destiny' by John William Waterhouse, painted in about 1900 when Britain was fighting the Boer war in South Africa. This copy is oil on board, 20x25cm (8x10 inches).
I saw the original recently at the J.W. Waterhouse exhibition- soon to close- at the Royal Academy. http://www.artrenewal.org/asp/databa...ge.asp?id=9643
you guys are doing an awesome work with those frazetta pics.
honestly i didn't know who he was before coming to this thread, and now i can't get enough of him . plus i always wondered who did this image, and now i know. might actually try a copy of that one
Great thread!. I really like the style of Matisse, so a few copies of his work.
Ooh, awesome thread. Here are some master copies of mine, all are from the last 3 weeks. The grissailles were much shorter paintings for class, the Velazquez I did on my own. Not entirely pleased with it, I'll have to redo it sometime in the future. The drawings are all copies of plates from the Academie Julian.
I love this thread!
Hey guys, here's some Sargent
Not my usual medium, but: Luca della Robbbia's Madonna of the Apple. Graphite and watercolor. Mostly experimenting with watercolor, but also trying to understand some things about reflected light and those gorgeous faces of his.
Edward Hopper's "Gas"
I'm working on the Mona Lisa atm!
I know I know..the most famous and well known painting in the world.. mmhmm..
Well I got told to do it, and wanted a challenge.. I like this thread alot, so I'll be posting soon!

Study I did from a Rubens ink sketch that never became a painting. It has no online reference from what I have found. The drawing was water damaged, and is no longer in my possession unfortunately - can't finish this one
master study I am doing that I will be finishing soon though.
Here's a couple photos of the same painting (just to give one a better idea of the colors).
This is a study from William Bouguereau's painting "Gabrielle Cot."
Oils on Canvas
32'' X 39''
A beautiful painting (must admit I haven't seen the original yet, just heard the name).
How can I have missed this thread?! Learning from the masters is something I just loove.
Am currently working on a Rembrandt study in color pencil. Will of course join in as soon as it's finished.
Any particular strategies you guys use to make master studies as valuable as possible by the way?
EDIT: Just remembered - can always post my latest Frazetta study meanwhile. Done in pencil some weeks ago, main purpose to learn more about male anatomy and how he applies shade:
