This is the second commission I am currently working on. It's a copy of a painting by George Earl an artist in the late 1800's. The client once owned an original limited edition print of this painting. I had a small image of a copy I had previously done of this painting on my website, which led the client to me.
I am a participant in the copyist program at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC. I find the program is invaluable to my self education program. By copying the originals, I learn about color, composition and brushwork. You get to study the masterworks in the collection up close. As good as a college degree, maybe better!
