Clausen "Brown Eyes"-copied by Pika-la-Cynique Clausen "Brown Eyes"-copied by Pika-la-Cynique
[EDIT the second....]

Et voila... the original painting "Brown Eyes", by Sir George Clausen, hanging in Tate Britain, a very striking portrait I fell in love with.
... and the scale copy I did in oils over the summer.
Obviously side by side like that my mistakes are pretty blatant. (It's also not a very good photo of my painting either.)
*le sigh* ah well. It was enjoyable, my first experience with oils.

Don't get that wrong! That's the original painting... I'm still struggling with the first layers! My assignment is to faithfully copy a portrait in the same style and media as the original. I doubt I'll succeed in achieving such finesse in my version!
The original is in Tate Britain, and is an arresting portrait. That little girl has a real presence.
