I am working on a large (to me) painting trying to improve my skills. I decided to copy a piece I saw when my museum had an exhibit called "Heart of Spain" several years ago. I fell in love with "Saint Hermenegildo" by Corrado Giaquinto. I have been studying the works of the old masters and when I read that all of them would copy other artists' works when they were starting out, I decided to do the same. If it's good enough for the masters then I should follow in their footsteps, relatively speaking, of course. There is someone that has been giving me inspiration, I am having so much fun!
