Copying Master Paintings at the Met

A couple of weeks ago myself and a few fellow students from the Grand Central Academy got permission to copy from master paintings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
This was a great opportunity to really get close to a master painting and understand what the artist was thinking when they made it.
I chose a portrait by Jean Baptiste Greuze to copy. Here it is partly finished.

                                     I should be able to get back to the Met soon and finish it.


  1. Wonderful work. It looks like you are being painted by the painting in the far right. : )

    1. Thanks Jose, You're right, I didn't realize that! I hope I stayed still enough for her to paint me.
