Hello All,

Here is another copy of a Master: Kevin Macpherson. I took way too long… but I learnt a lot. I strongly recommend that you copy a masters work, you learn a lot from copying. It was truly a lovely thing. I have totally reduced the use of medium to nothing. After I clean my brush in water sometimes I dip it in the medium to get a light coat on the brush to keep all the hair together. For now, I am using using water and Holbein Duo and I am in heaven. Total control baby!

I took to long to copy this work… 4 hours maybe or more… on a 5"x7". As always please unleash the critique in you… Smile

(PLEASE DO NOT COPY THE WORK OF OTHER ARTISTS TO SELL, IT IS ILLEGAL AND IMMORAL).

Faisal, good for you for working from other painters. That's how the masters learned too.

Hard for me to say too much without seeing the original by Macpherson, but I like the way this has turned out. Nice use of colour, nothing gets too dark or heavy in this painting. Great shadows on the boats. Did you try copying his brushstrokes as well as colour and composition?

Hi Alan,

Thanks. I concentrated on colors only and I think the brushstroke happened automatically and it was quite close.

Offcourse Kevin's is much better. I am a poor man's Kevin Macpherson… Smile

Faisal

I like this one very much. So glad you're learning so much from the experience. Just a quick note though, you might want to be careful posting the copies of modern masters online as it's still considered a copyright violation if there isn't written permission even if the work isn't sold. Of course, if the work is from a lesson and you give credit to the original artist, I don't think it's a problem. The laws vary from country to country some but the basics can be found here:

Thanks Jan. Wow! the world of copy right is sure weird. I actually copied it from Kevin's book with lessons etc, which I think should be fine.
