It used to be that artists in training would copy another artists paintings. This was in a sense to absorb some of the essence of the masters ability to paint. Now I’ve been meaning to do this for a while now and I’ve chosen the above painting to “copy.” Waterhouse is one of my favorite painters, I’ve even had a Waterhouse week last summer where I featured a different Waterhouse painting every day. I don’t really think I can absorb Mr. Waterhouse’s ability to paint but I will give my best to do this beautiful painting justice. I’ll be doing a weekly update thingy with my progress.
Thanks for looking in,
