    A sick lady painting - Copy from A. Mancini

    I discovered this stunning, but really great, though mentally disturbed painter: Antonio Mancini born in Rome in the XIX century, and dead in Rome as well in the XX after being in Paris and elsewhere.
    He followed academic painting studies, but his lucky illness made him capable of amazing paintings and he could use two or three styles he could emulate on the same painting such as the one of Sargent who, among other great painters, met him and became his friend and was impressed by him.
    Here some information on him:

    Here's my attempt of copy (censored version, uncensored in the After 9).

    I hope You like it even it's pretty hard to get a good enough impasto effect reproduction ...

    Wow Caesar, excellent work. Your after 9 version is also primo. And thanks for the introduction to Mancini. Now I have to explore his stuff. Great find.

    Thank You, dear Byron!
    In my After 9 replies I also treated some technical issue I met trying to get good color tones and hues and spontaneous strokes (looking at least) with only the two custom brushes types in the oil settings.

    Yes, dear Sandra, I'm especially awesome just after waking up and before I manage to comb my hair! Thank You!

    Thank You, dear Katie! I'm appreciating the use of essential canvas as bas for both oil paintings and drawings, since it also help to harmonize colors and textures. For most brilliant colors though, some areas should perhaps be painted pure white and I didn't proceed so in here ...

    Thank you, dear MacPix! Sooner or later I should try my brushstrokes on thick painting too ...

    Let me guess, this is another spaghetti western. . .

    But hello. . . hasn't there been a slight mix up in casting? Remake of High Noon? That's a right efficient looking sheriff though. Why the heck not. This ain't Pay-Per-View. Roll film and pass the Chianti, amigo.
