View Full Version : Sargent 'Rosina'

I enjoyed painting from Sargent's joyous work, which has tremendous chiaroscuro in the face and neck. I tried to stay close to the spirit of the original.
My painting is in oil on 16x20in canvas. The cropped original follows.
Any comments very welcome.

Thank you for sharing. I think you hav caught the expression from his painting very well here. The essentials even by focusing on the face.
Best regards :)

Very nice work.
This is a favorite Sargent of mine, and I had thought of making a copy of it myself.

John, thank you for your comments. I learnt a lot by painting it, particularly in terms of brushwork and background treatment.
