Master copy and art dumpage.

Been extra busy lately.

The item of today are master copies. I can't stress them enough! I have learned so much from them, and it's fascinating to see how the masters portrayed what they saw. Emulating their brush strokes and aesthetic choices really opened my eyes to different ways of approaching a subject, what to emphasize on, and what to skimp on.

The following is a very tiny oils on a Van Dyck painting.

The original

The copy

Don't be fooled, the original's colors are way more vibrant than that!

Sweet fun! Anyway here's some extra stuff, unfinished illustrations,sketches, life drawings,portrait paintings and concepts.
