Master study: Vacation
Here’s a master copy again – I wanted to do something nice and fun to recover some confidence in my painting.
Original: J.C. Leyendecker “Vacation” (1907)
Today I’ve got a gif with the progress for you:
What did I learn?
* I still have to be careful not to place the eyes too high
* Work more often from dark to light (it’s fun and feels promising)
* Get the big shapes right first, then render (but not everything)
* Practice faces!
