Hi there and GREAT to see you- we're going to have such a rewarding experience while learning to paint with Vincent Van Gogh together. Annie and I have filmed and selected the best 10 hours of exciting educational video to proudly offer you in this course on Van Gogh!
So glad you are here and brave enough to experiment, play and learn!
I like this paragraph written by Courtney Jordon on the Artists Network from her article: "Being a Copycat is a Good Thing"
"It’s funny when you think about it, but the art world is built on copying. Unlike plagiarism in journalism or literature, however, copying master drawings is something many artists, for centuries, have incorporated into their studies. Why? Because it is an excellent way to closely study and evaluate incredible artwork. It was a widespread method during the 16th and 17th centuries. And copying allows artists then and now to demonstrate their growing ability to draw and render, or to create an homage honoring a revered artistic master of drawing, painting or both.When you think about it, getting lessons from the masters in this way is a bit of a luxury. All the works are laid out in front of you and all you have to do is observe. There is no pressing timetable or hoops to jump through. You can focus on discovering the drawing techniques they used and work through their process as a drawing exercise to hone your own skills."
