Master Copy - Offering to Venus

By AngelaSasser
You can see the animated progression here:

I recently finished a master copy of John William Godward's painting, Offering to Venus.  This was my first ever attempt at copying a masterwork and it's proven to be a most enlightening experience!  Many thanks to *Zephyri for her suggestion to try this exercise and her tutorials on the matter.

I've written an in-depth blog post about how this exercise helped me here:

Wow, what a stunning copy! I really had to look close to see the differences, and I wasn't sure which one was the original until I read the names at the bottom. Great work! :)

:wow: I couldn't see the difference at first until I took a closer look. I love how you painted the fabric, the folds are gorgeous, and the sheer part is so beautiful :love: Absolutely astounding work! :clap:

Something my hubby keeps pushing me to do...I'm hesitant...or I'll do my "version" of it
I love how you showed the comparison.
