So cool! I love these portrait copies. I've always heard that copying is a great way to learn, but I've never tried it. What kinds of things have you been learning from it?
A lot about brush handling. Comparing the feel of putting down less paint than I'm used to. Also ridding myself of what I thought I understood about the colors found in eyes for example. There really are not whites of the eyes when you're painting. After doing a few of these I'm now interested in changing the likeness to people I'm familiar with, swapping our their likeness for the original. Fun stuff!
Like doing a portrait of your daughter in a Renaissance style? I think that'd be really neat!
