Very nice Pat! May I recommend that you begin looser and with bigger brushes and strokes to knock in your base colors and then work your way to smaller marks. Some say we should use the largest brush we can get away with, and that is something I can agree with to some extent but where and how does require some experience. Certainly in the background it's very useful to work broadly initially.

That's what Pino did in many cases. It varies the marks and makes a really nice blend between splashy color for its own aesthetic sake, and then it looks like he sort of shapes it into form with amazing finesse where it counts.

Go ahead and push your color saturation as well. It can get tricky. But it's worth it to extend your grasp on color use. Look at his work again on Google Images or wherever you can see a lot of them side by side. His color is not as easy as he makes it look. I had to really work at it to get it just right. Kind of like anything where we copy a master, whether it's in music or dance or art. But the effort really does pay off. Helps us look closer at paintings quickly.

But this is very cool. You're getting good form, and you're doing good things with the edges (ie transitions between color areas). You're doing great!

Hello Pat..I see you have been taking advice from Mr D. Akey,very sound advice too,your latest paintings are a testimony to that,its very good practice to copy some of the master painters,Ceasar has shown this with his Steve Hanks copies,you are following the same path ,very well done keep it up....Jack.

This is possibly Your best Pino inspired work. Superlative one with a very elegant erotic charge too. :):):):):)
The name of Angelica reminds me also of a TV series about the adventures of a XVIII century French lady who was quite "inspiring" too ...:D

04-12-2012, 06:23 AM
Pat, she is beautiful, as others say:you are getting better and better with each picture. You are inspiring me also, because his work is how i would like to paint and good is to go to "masters" school. I am curious, if you would like Bougereau, i love his works, his girls,also. So i wonder, who will be the next one........??? :-) I might try one or two again... would be fun....so...go Pat go...:-) :-)
