You have a wonderful touch with paint, I know they are copies. However, I think there's something of you besides the original artist in each of them.

Lovely work, all of them.

thanks, you're the first one who tells me so, and I have to say that you're absolutely right

You have made some masterful copies. Very varied artists and techniques. I especially like your Rembrandt Peale and your Charles Towne landscape is beautiful. YOur da Vinci is also fine, though in my opinion one should try to paint the colors as one imagines the original artist painted the painting, not how the colors look today due to aging, varnish, etc. Do you paint originals for the learning experience, to apply to your own work? If so I'd love to see some of your own works.

Really impressive work !
Also ,wonderful job on Johannes Verspronck copy !You have a very good eye,and a short of adaptation to each technique involved here .
You could glaze more blue on the Lady with Hermine's dress ,and probably ,(because l'm not seeing in the photos you provided ),on the Hermine's fur ,some highlights of the actual hair ,which is very visible on the original
Cheers!

Thanks Allison for your feedback. Currently I paint the classics of the old masters to learn the art of ancient painting, for now it's just a study. I paint only in 2010, 4 hours a day, almost every day. For now I do not have a clear idea of what to paint. For now only copies, one day I will see what to do. To me it's just a hobby. Thank you and good luck. I'm Italian, I live in Milan, and excuse me if my english writing is not perfect.

Your copies are excellent. When it is my turn to host the painting from the master's project, I hope you will join in. It will be either Ingres or Jacques Louis David.

So much beautiful copies here ! Well done ! I am sure you'll find an inspiration for your own paintings someday, especially after you have done so much work on these paintings and surely learned a lot from it.

I have one comment on your copy of Caravaggio's "Bachus" - I found his flesh looks quiet flat - there is not so much defined forms. For instance, the tip of the nose you defined beautifully, but the rest of the body remains unfinished.

Nathalie thanks for the comment on Bachus, you're right, in fact the color details are not yet completed. But sooner or later I'll finish. was for me the most difficult painting of my work and I had temporarily abandoned.

Have you none of your own work at all ?
I would love to see something of your own work .

You obviously have great talent in mixing etc and you must have spent incredible amounts of time on this work . I would say your incredibly gifted .

I started off by copying John Constables and Van de Velds work , foolishly thought I could paint lol , then tried my own material , oh dear !

Then I really appreciated how clever these people were and know the difference between an artist and a painter which is all I will ever be , but still love my hobby.

Thanks in'm not an artist, I'm a painter, I paint only copies of "Old Masters". Whatever I did to mine would be an insult to the great masters. If I do something, I want to do well. Why make something of my then if it is not interesting? Everyone has their limits. And I know which one is mine.
If you really want to see something of my own, I enclose a "still life"
But as you can see is trivial.

Your still life is beautiful! You are indeed an artist.

If you are satisfied with reproducing Master's paintings, then, of course, continue. I have done many and learned much from them. It's in the doing, the act of painting where much joy is to be found.

@walter.cozzili

How would your carbon copy method work? I'm curious to know the process and materials. Thanks.

I simply use the graphite paper A3, and the free software "PosteRazor" to print my copy in several A4 sheets that join with tape. After overlap the copy obtained on the graphite sheets needed to cover the whole canvas, and tracing with a ballpoint pen.
