One aspect of developing as an artist includes copying a master. I have copied Wolf Kahn's "Sun Drenched Barn" (see blog entry) and today I copied his painting "Magenta Stripe."
What did I learn? To duplicate the stroke of a master, a student has to try a lot of wrong things before the right thing happens. I love his sense of color and composition. The colors of this are very exciting. I'm sure that this copy will influence my next painting. And, I'm eager to see how!
