Isaac Levitan - Master study

Doing master studies is like cooking with recipe.

Why?

Because:

  1. You know what you get when finished.
  2. The composition is worked out (how the meal looks like after cooking)
  3. Colors including values are thought out (ingredients)
  4. The amount of paint used is visible (quantities)

 

Emulating is a beautiful way to learn and great springboard for own efforts.
