Next two lessons from masters just started. Two completely different approaches this far.
Have a look if You wish and don't keep Your breath to see them finished ... :D:p
They are respectively Carlo Saraceni and Norman Rockwell.
No tracing, just an attempt to copy from images aside ...

Not the one by Carlo Saraceni, rather the one by Norman Rockwell I guess. :eek::p:D This is a curious enough coincidence (I strangely already had several curious coincidences mostly with lady mates in here :rolleyes:), You're right, although, as a first excercise, I didn't want to select a too complex and long painting of him to reproduce.
Actually I would have rather liked to proceed with the another one similarly into a Museum, that entitled framed, but I couldn't find any decent picture of it on the net (I've got it in my book on Norman Rockell though).
Anyway I may stop for the moment and change, if You wish. Pls, after You Madam, then ....:p

Nice start Caesar, I will follow the progress.

Thank You, dear Geoff. It probably is, since I did it without any perspective grid, but I'll try to fix it later on, before putting a light shadow under the guy. Here's the new step with a sort of Pollock-like painting and almost half of the gentleman.

Here one more step and about to finish (and polish maybe;, the gentleman is on one layer only this far).
Hope the floor perspective is pretty right now ...

Thank You, dear Swanson! On a larger scale and somemore layer for the figure it could get even more refined, but PC resorces and time wouldn't allow me to push too much the excercise ...

This is great Cesare, you really have done a perfect job on this one:)

Thank You, dear Katie! I finished it, stopped it with this size and layers and put in the main gallery. I thought it was a useless excercise to increase size and add glazing layers to improve details to an almost iperrealistic degree ... :rolleyes:
