Sorolla


Hi Everyone, This is a copy of a Sorolla, I didn't try to copy it exactly. I just brought his painting up on my monitor and freehanded everything. I try to paint from life as often as possible but when I do paint from a photo I like to paint from my monitor. If you are lucky enough to have a hi-resolution photo you can enlarge your subject and really see the details. This is oil on a 8 X 10 stretched canvas. I have 2 paintings completed for the show in February called "Dance with Me", when it gets closer I'll show you those. Have a wonderful weekend!

Nice job, Barb. And thanks for introducing me to a new artist, sorta. I had heard the name, but never seen his work. Now I have a whole lot of "new" paintings to look through this weekend!

Sorolla was amazing! And you've certainly caught that Sorolla feeling.

Hi Laura, His work is wonderful. Check out Potthast too while you're at it. Nice to see you.
