30″ x 40″ personal study/master copy (oil on canvas)
There is so much to learn from the original impressionists and masters of classical painting and drawing. “The Gleaner’s” by Jean-Francoise Millet has always been a favorite of mine and I chose to do a “master copy” of this particular painting to learn some of his color mixing, technique and brush strokes.
Juliette Aristides is a modern day classical painter and teaches through her Atelier in the Pacific Northwest. I have not had the pleasure of attending her school but have learned quite a bit from the series of books she has published and highly recommend them.
