Master Landscape Studies

Just found this forum. Where is everyone? I like copying masters, not only to learn but because I love art history. I channel the masters, and they paint through me.

Here are a few small oil studies of some of my favorite masters, each with a distinct style (in order): Claude Lorrain; van Ruisdael; Claude Vernet; Hubert Robert; Asher Durand. . .

Re: Master Landscape Studies

Very cool! I'm curious -- why do you prefer to make the copies smaller? (I assume the originals are larger?) How do you get the drawing right? (I spend an inordinate time on drawing when I'm copying master works.) And do you keep these things for yourself or give them away?

Re: Master Landscape Studies

Thanks, Geoff. The originals are much larger. I've always loved detailed miniature things.

I paint on Claybord panels and they are great for drawing on and erasing. I do a lot of drawing with my brush, only on something like architecture do i do a detailed drawing, most of the landscapes are simple line drawings.

The intense concentration required for painting these is therapeutic and keeps my mind off of some health issues. I have given away many of these as gifts.

Thanks again,
David

Re: Master Landscape Studies

Excellent, David. I think I have a couple Claybord panels lying around. I hadn't realized they could work well with oils. Maybe I'll give it a try.

Anyway, fantastic work!
