Two alla prima studies. One after Sargent's copy of Aesop by Velasquez and a portrait of Verdonck by Frans Hals. Both oil on linen paper (38*46cm) in about 5 hours each. C&C more than welcome, thanks for watching!

I find both of these quite interesting copies, where you have been somewhat faithful, but have still kept your own brushwork and style. I think you may get more response if you include the original artist's images along with your own. In particular, your Aesop is in some ways a lot closer to Sargents, IMO, than Sargents is to Velasquez's. Personally I prefer Velasqueses, but that is for a different discussion.
