WOW.. I'm A fan of Sargent but don't remember seeing this one. You find some good ones Nickel. I decided to post my (imaginary California Landscape) not taken after any classical artist per say but I hope fits the classical style.

This one was out of my head but I'm sure the composition could be better. Done in Photoshop. 18 x 24

Yes,Barbara, it fits perfect, and I love it, nice cool tree with shade to lay under and look at the clouds!
It is a really beautiful landscape. Love the tree! Nickel

Hi again!

This is my new entry for the week... "the Young Hare" by Durer... it's a watercoloured graphite drawing. I'm sorry that the scanned picture of it seems a bit stained , while my original drawing isn't ! Hope you like it just the same ! ...Tyree's sketch is really nice and melancholic :thumbsup: , while I don't understand what P.pixels means by " Done in Photoshop" is it an oil painting somehow elaborated in her computer?:confused: Anyway, it's cool!

Bye from Italy !http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/01-Jun-2006/77963-File0544zip.jpg

Hi Guys missed last week thread. This one actually.

Barbara it does have a classical feel to it. Lovely landscape. :)

Last week I looked into a lot of Sargent work. Never really took the time to do it and enjoyed a lot.

Nickel I like the soft colors on the girl and lovely start for such short time. :)

Susan, more of your graphite sketches of sweet faces. Your handle of tonal contrast is so cool. :)

Mony that is lovely! So cute!! :)

Me off to work on something to post on Week 23! See you! :)
