Copying the Masters

Over the last few years, I've found quite helpful trying to reproduce my favourite masterpieces from Masters such as Seago, Degas or Turner. It helps me to get more familiar with their techniques and color palette. I can never make it anywhere near as good as the originals but still wish I came up with the concept and composition myself!
Here are below a few of my attempts to copy the Masters...

 Reproduction of Calm Morning, Pin Mill (Edward Seago)

Reproduction of Endeavour at St. Benet's Abbey (Edward Seago) 

Reproduction in pastels of a detail of
The Burning of the Houses of Lords and Commons

Reproduction in pastels of Yacht approaching the Coast

  1. These are beautiful and I think you learn so much from this exercise.
    I see you have Trevor Chamberlain on your link list. I discovered him when he published Oil Painting Pure and Simple and was (still am) captivated by his beautiful work!!
