Sometimes it is fun to see what you can learn from the masters by copying a master work. I really like this artist and he has been gone from the earth long enough to feel free to copy him. His name is Andres Zorn. I really liked this painting, the brush strokes, the lighting, and of course, the lovely subject matter. Whenever you copy an artist you need to wait at least 75 years after his/her death and sometimes longer. No matter what you must always site the original artist along with yourself on the work... In this case it would read Margaret Aycock after Andres Zorn.
