Sargent Copy

So like, I never posted much from that painting class I took in 2011 at TAD. I had to drop out near the end because I moved across BC to work on the Pony show. I blew up my life for the millionth time. Too bad, it was a pretty great course. It was online but live and taught by Jason Manly and Jon Foster.

This first assignment was to copy this John Singer Sargent painting. It's harder than you'd think!!  It was the first time I used Corel Painter too. It's a neat program, but clunky and glitchy. Tough to make digital look like real paint.
I have so many versions of this I have no idea if this was the final one or not. I can see so much wrong with it now too.
