Copy a master


Back in 2004 when I was in school (waaaaha, I miss it :/) we had an assignment called "Copy a master". It was about learning how to paint, and by copying someone pro you'd learn from it. I sure did! I never did much painting and I regret that (ok, I'm only 26 - there is time), but doing this was fun! I love Munch and I would love to copy more of his work to learn from him, but I guess I should try to paint something from my own mind instead (like that's gonna happen anytime soon).


Well - here's my Madonna.
I painted her in acrylics on a thin canvas, compared to Munch using oils.


The scanning isn't all that good so the colors are a bit off.
And below you can see the original and mine together.
