|After John Singer Sargent Portrait of Sarah Choate Sears|
Did another masters study as part of the DA speed paint group. This one I went a little over the 2 hour mark on partly because it was so much fun. It was the first time I have had time to do any serious painting this week and I really missed it. What is noticeable about this one was the detail was all in the face and hands all else was built from large bold brushwork and changing hue and value to suggest the form. Great portrait.
My effort things that jump out are - went astray with the proportions and did not reproduce the tones in the face. May return to this to finish. The painting process is on livestream.

|After Vermeer The Milkmaid|
Master studies are the theme for the speedpaint group on DA. This one is Vermeers. Composition was great and lighting. Surprised how much work was possible in the 2 hours I spent on this. As ever master copies on the Web means that copies will shift in colour and light. Concerns about this painting on the web are discussed here. The copy I worked from was on the dark side when compared with this one. On the plus side it meant a lot of detail was hidden which stopped me going in early to detail.
Livestream is here.
