Working on the reconfigured copy
Sometimes gallery visitors take my picture while working on a copy. I thought this was rather unique. Notice the use of the maul stick. The tip should have a protective soft ball so as not to scratch the painting. I'm a rather crude artist and feel I can always correct any damage to the painting.
This is a recent shot of the painting. Each day I concentrate on a section of the work. All of the elements are roughly blocked in. The problem now is to refine the images. I will probably return to many of the images several times to achieve as close a likeness as possible.
I am a full-time artist since birth. Though I have two academic degrees in fine art, I consider myself self taught. My passion for drawing and painting is as great today at 74 as it was when in sunday school. My greatest lesson was to learn humility.
