Studies of color - Studies of masters of painting nº 2
Hello everyone! I hope you are having a great start to the week. I'm back with you to continue sharing my work. This time I bring you another master study, an interpretation of a painting by Toulouse Lautrec.
This painting is titled "the washerwoman", and is a piece where Lautrec showed a remarkable mastery in the handling of light through color, using a reduced palette of colors but applied punctually to differentiate well the planes in the composition.
I have decided to do this series of studies of masters as I am looking to acquire more skills in the management of color and lighting through it. It is very useful to see how renowned painters in the history of art resolved their compositions. Touluese Lautrec was a French painter of the late nineteenth century, the subjects treated in his works speak of everyday life in Paris and recreational activities of that time, but his most outstanding work is in which Lautrec shows us scenes of the guest houses of Paris at that time, scenes of parties, dances, and life in the brothels.
How useful is it to do this kind of exercise?
It turns out that when trying to replicate a work, we put our brain to analyze how others have solved the pictorial problem, we can learn about the composition, the brushstroke, the use of color and consequently the handling of light, drawing, form, texture.
A bit of the process.
