Gah! Bouguereau is one of my absolute favorite artists! I've been thinking about doing a master study of Biblis (my favorite work of his) for a long time now. I really feel inspired by you to try it now!! XD

Well, i can see a few difference between bouguereau's style and yours, but that's awesome how you rendered this!

Wow, this is crazy. I'm really curious about it. I compared the original to this and I noticed you didn't really play with anything, so I gather that the point of a Master Study would be to completely recreate the original work. Do I have that right? I've only heard about Master Studies in passing, so I don't know how they work. I really like how you added all the brush strokes. They really help add to the style! This is such a curious thing. I'd love to know more about. Thank you for creating this.

aww thanks! It's funny you think I didn't play with anything haha:) if you lay them directly next to eachother you can see my figure is more voluptuous and her scarf on mine is much more suggestive where master  Bouguereau's version his brushstrokes are all carefully thought out, you can also see it back in the sky and foreground where I went really out in the brushstrokes not focusing on detail to much. Next to that my colours are way off as I despise colour picking and I rarely work directly in colour xD As for your question, it really depends on what you want to get out of it! for example I try to understand colour (in classical compositions) better (and the classical composition in general) I love how the classical realism is so skillfully rendered in his so very mythological themed world! it's amazing how the eye just buys the fact that she is floating in the air and she is actually WAY of balance but studying the painting makes you realise not only her cloth but also the bats and the owls put the entire composition in balance (a similar phenomena occurs in the birth of Venus by Botticelli, where, if you would see her without all the figures surrounding her she would seem to tip over). I think per artist it depends, I think some people would really go for a direct copy but I don't like that:) same goes for my other realistic work! I want to capture the likeliness of a character but that's about it:)

Wow, I feel foolish now. I saw for the most part the two pieces were the same, so I wrote it off as copying without fully studying both pieces and seeing the nuances. I have disgraced and shamed myself, I cannot relay to you the feats of my folly. I am truly sorry and I pray for your forgiveness! It is amazing though. Your colors are a tad more light and the entire palette has this lovely blue overtone. You also added a touch more detail to the owl that he did not. And as you said your brush strokes are different. I did notice she was floating though! It threw me off as to why he would do that and why I didn't think it strange. To think the birds aid in the composition. Madness. I never considered something so simple. I've never wanted to do a master study myself. I don't know what I would take away from it. After seeing this, I gotta say I'm more intrigued. Thank you for giving me your time! This has been a wonderful lesson. I pray very merry days find you. Cheers! :)

you've captured those bold wet smeary brushstrokes, and watercolour wash background, so well. Is this digitally done? the colours are perfect. The stars might look a little too perfectly dotted but that's just 'cause I'm looking for something to be critical of. It's really stunning!

It's soooo juicy for digital! Love the painterly look, also how the face is so much more focussed than the rest. Was Bougereau a pre-raphaelite or...? What era? I'm curious. I could google it but it's more fun chatting with you!
