I found some absolutely stunning paintings by Ivan Shishkin. What an incredible artist, absolutely outstanding! Hans Gude is also amazing! Choose any one of these. I will be uploading more Master painter’s works for you to choose from if these are not your cup of tea or too challenging for you. Choose any of these and let me know which one and I’ll send a much larger file for you your inbox.
Very beautiful and very inspiring works of art. It would be quite the challenge to pursue any one of these. Thank you @Naomi for finding these and providing them to the forum. Hoping to possibly do one of these studies. When, I’m not sure yet. It would be a wonderful learning experience.
Yes they are indeed very challenging, I’m starting mine on monday. I just primed my panel and waiting for it to dry. I’m going to copy the Sunrise in the woods, i’m shaking in my boots 😳 I don’t even know where to start 😅 I think i have an idea how I’m going to approach it.
You can choose your own Master to copy if these are too challenging, paint a copy that inspires you and also something you want to learn how to do. For me, I live in the woods, and want to learn how to paint evergreens 🌲 I’m sure by the time i’m done, I would have enough confidence to tackle the woods en plein air.
