Sargent




I am working on a copy of Sargent selfportrait. I should appreciate to hear some feedback so far. I believe there is something wrong wth the eye in the light.

Jan, this is awesome! Sargent's and Cassatt's work is something else. When I study their work I notice such ease in paint application.

Hi Jan, it's looking great so far.
If this is your reference, you can see a better copy in the ARC Forum. Here is the address:

Mischa: thanks for your reply. Yes I have the same feeling when copying Sargent. For him it was obviously a very natural happening.
Allan: thanks for replying. In fact I do not have a photo of the selfpic anymore, only a paper copy. Thanks for the link; the photo is indeed much better. I'm supprised that the colors are much warmer, more orange then my paper photo wich has more a purple, light rose colortone. Maybe this is due to my printer . Anyway, it is the tonal relationship witch is important. Sargent has such a loose stroke and yet very exact when needed.

This looks like your on the right direction here. It seems to me that the face in the original seems fuller, more robust. That
