I've been studying art only for a short while (since August) and I have definitely been bitten. I spend the greater portion of my available time practicing.
I've done a few master copies of Michaelangelo studies and have found them very useful in learning about line quality, form construction, hatching and value.
I'm interested in learning more about everything really, but with a focus on the foundations for my skill level. What I'm looking for is recommendations of what artists/which pieces would be most valuable to copy in order to learn most about the fundamentals. I know this might be a matter of taste, but I'm curious to hear your suggestions nonetheless. What do I study to learn most about line, value, color, painting technique(which I would apply in photoshop ) etc?
Thank you in advance.
