Study of a Master: Thomas Eakins

Study of Thomas Eakins "Study of a Woman", 16x20", oils
With watercolors, I am highly particular to design and detail. With oils, I am looser and more prone to work with the medium rather than working against it. This was an interesting piece to do. Helped me understand the Masters much like the Impressionists and how they established such a thick application of medium, or how they were known for their very loosely based styles. Very different from my norm, but this study taught me the use of color against others, clashing so predominantly.
