Artist's Description

DATE: Friday April 26th
MEDIUM: A4 white sketchbook/black biro pen
DESCRIPTION: I ‘tried’ copying an Old Master painting: Jean Marc Nattier, Manon Balletti.

What attracted me to this work was seeing the way the rose, at the heart of the picture, was so extremely well drawn/painted.

So, I decided why not ‘try’ and copy it…??? Of course, as usual, I failed…in the end I just gave up/quit…this artist is far too good; and, I’m nowhere near…not even to be able to to merely ‘copy’ his work.

When I looked at the really splendid ‘masterpiece’; then, I looked at my really ‘weak’ copy; I could only think to myself…oh shi*!…I’ve totally screwed up, again! Why even bother to try…??? I mean, either you’re an artist/or, you’re NOT…simple as that.
