Maybe it’s a bad habit, but lately if I think of a painting I like by somebody else, I just try painting something similar as an exercise. I don’t look at the original painting or copy it, I just quickly do something small from memory, with that painting in mind. It doesn’t matter what the outcome is – at this stage I learn something new every time I paint, no matter what I do. Here’s today’s daubs, with their parent paintings.
(I didn’t have any particular painting in mind when I made this one, but Schutz and de Balincourt in a general way)
