    Maybe also for geographical and cultural reasons we think somehow alike, dear Andrea, thank You!
    The painting is actually pure Artrage, made of three layers: a sketchy drawing base layer then a rough, area painted background on a second layer above the drawing (curtains, wall and chair colors withouth details) and finally a third layer on top with other strokes/ details for the background and practically the whole figure and dress painting). I attach herebelow the three layers all contributing to the final effect.
    Don't ask me why the background on two layers and the figure on one. I tend to mess up a little bit when I try to set up a process ... LOL

    Thanks for sharing Dear Caesar, maybe in the future I will paint some other stuff from Sargent, but before that there are so many inspiring paintings out there that I'd like to reproduce

    I'm curious to know which other paintings You like, dear Andrea.
    Personally I loved to copy in the past several masters, among whom, Anders Zorn, Jack Vettriano, Bouguereau, Frank Frazetta, Lucien Freud, Norman Rockwell, Klimt and also Caravaggio. Quite a salad of different styles You would say ... Anyone of them You like too?

    Nice work! I like the use of colour in the hair and the way light interacts with different textures is spot on.

    Nice one Caesar!

    It's interesting when one is copying what is seen on the surface as opposed to building up the picture as one would do for an original. The procedure is quite different. Still, there's a lot to be learned from doing it that way.

    But I am thinking there is nothing wrong. In fact I think it may push a whole generation of artists on the computer into a different realm and different techniques. I've seen many painted this way on YouTube demos where it looks as if the artist has to do no working up to a finish, but rather they just paint what is seen. Of course there are other demos where they do build up as well. But in the olden days of long ago, you would rarely construct a painting of this kind this way unless you had done it this way hundreds of times and knew what you had to do and what was unnecessary.

    The interesting thing to me is that you in the recent past have been blending cartooning and painting and thus coming up with a unique style of your own, and that's always the best -- to make it a synthesis of the various methods you've come across in your personal journey.

    Anyway, I like this Caesar, for what you're doing with it in your own way. That's bringing creativity to what could have been a mere mechanical exercise. Good man.

    Caesar and Andrea, both are mind blowing good! It's interesting Caesar, how your unique style still shows in your painting, even though you are following another artist.

    Ciao Caesar,
    actually I like A LOT Bouguereau (alongiside with John William Waterhouse and John William Godward of course!), I googled the others (except Caravaggio whom I already knew)... Jack Vettriano is the one I like the most (his paintings look like stills from vintage movies!) while Lucien Freud is definitely not my cup of tea (you know I'm an esthete ).

    Recently I discovered these amazing contemporary painters (check them out!):
