After Whitaker

Another study, this time not quite so brief (about 2 hours), of a portion of a William Whitaker painting. I had to actually try this to finally get a feeling for how good he is. I never would have thought of using those colors myself. And the end result is surprisingly good, even filtered through my imperfect brain and hands.

I'm especially interested by how it continues to work well (I think) when shrunk really tiny:

I wish the stuff I do for myself would work so well. Maybe tomorrow.
