Painting the Masters
So I was painting these today and I thought "Hey! Here's something I can put up on my blog!" In my attempt to learn how to paint (which is taking much blood, sweat and tears) I decided to copy some of the masters. These two paintings are copies of two Russian impressionists, who the great Sam Michlap turned me on to. Painting from their paintings helps me see how these incredible painters approached color and how far I have to go. So enjoy!
(oh and the names of the painters are: Alexander Gulyayev and Zoya Samoilenko, I'm not sure which order blogger is going to post these paintings, so I'll just give you the names of the painters and let you sort out which one is attributed to which.)
