Copying the Great Masters in Art Class
Oils on canvas with brush, done in 2005. This is a copy of one of the great masters, re-drawn via use of a projector-like thing. This was a project for an art class on oil transparencies.
I didn't like anything about the process, the copying of someone else's art, the laborious application of transparency over transparency; however I did like the knowledge gained about this kind of painting. I will leave the great masters to it; it isn't for me.
Unfinished. The color of the headcloth is teal in the original.
