Dear Eighty+, it looks far more like the immense baroque master Peter Paul Rubens style than a more recent and less outstanding Mucha ... ;):)
The former was a Flemish diplomat and painter who came stayed very much in Italy where he was profoundly influenced by the Italian masterpieces and, in particular, the Venitian painting school and its greatest masters, especially Tintoretto and Veronese.
I'm eager to see how Your talent will delightfully re-elaborate such a Baroque age painting ...:rolleyes:;):)

Dear Eighty+, a possible explanation the most copied or re-elaborated masters are generally the greatest one and the most interesting and original compositions. Mucha, as good as he was, isn't considered so, I'm afraid ... very elegant, I like him, but probably a little boring and not that powerful and classical to be re-worked, as Fancis Bacon did with a Titien portrait, for instance, or Picasso with Manet ...
Herebelow I would attach some Rubens' drawings where he, in at least two cases, copied two of the most famous masterpieces, Anghiari Battle and Laocoon. He made drawings from the greatest Italian masters when he was, quite a long time, in Italy, just as You do with artrage now.
For a better comparison, I changed Mucha four seasons to black and white and the graphical part are just the darker lines. The other tones are paint and the frame is a mix of geometrical drawings and some floreal motives he made using some technical drawing tools too and getting a stencil he repeated. If I had a larger picture of the four seasons I could show on a part of it how easier is drawing those figures, practically just the contours ...
Obviously there are many cases of geometrical figures where tricks and tools are far better than bare hands (and they were well known also before the computers), but it measure the real drawing ability.
I hope this little dispute was interesting to You. My older son loves Keith Haring (and I like him too), but I easily showed him, with Artrage, that he's pretty easy to reproduce, so his value is not in his graphical skills ... Some masters do naturally had most or all kind of skills, as it was the case of Rubens ...
