One of the things I have done when no ideas for painting are evident, is to copy other artists’ work. It hasn’t been easy for me to paint these past few months so I turned to a book of Tom Thompson’s landscapes.
What I learned is that it was almost impossible to paint like the artist I was copying. How hard it was to emulate his brush strokes. And to see what he saw.
It was an interesting exercise. [Ed note: these were copied for learning/practice purposes and are not for sale.]
