Painting for practice

This is from my OCA blog, Understanding Painting Media:

“Periodically, when I get stuck or frustrated at how things are going, I make a copy of a painting that’s caught my eye. It could be the colours, the style, the composition, anything really; and I have a go at making something similar with my own preferred media and maybe adding some that the original artist may not have had to hand or didn’t care to use.”

Copy of Breitner’s ‘Gust of Wind’ 1890. Acrylics on duck cotton, approx size A2.
