To create new, timeless paintings today, one studies how the old master's painted.  Here are some of my studies from a few favorite Baroque and Renaissance artists:


Top Left:  Baccus (After Caravaggio) 22 cm x 30 cm; Oil on Canvas.  A study/reproduction of the painting that lives in Florence at the Uffizi.


Middle Left:  Psyche and Amore (After

Bougeureau, Part).  8 in  x 10 in;  Oil on Canvas

This study references a part of Bougeureau's painting, however I used Caravaggio's palette instead.


Bottom Left: Madona Di Loreto (After Caravaggio

Part).   22 cm x 30 cm; Oil on Canvas.  A study/reproduction of a part of Caraggio's larger work.  The original lives in Rome at the Sant Agostino. The painting is also known as Madonna of the Pilgrams.
