(after Sorolla)

(after Sargent)

2 quick studies based on portraits by Juaquin Sorolla & his homeboy John Singer Sargent. Like the Speedpaints, just trying to get a feel for the form & the lighting. Don't think I quite got the light: esp. in top painting (ala Sorolla) reflected light in face is not there. I would always see homages to artists' works with the words "apologies to..." Now I see why, 2 beautiful portraits mauled by my crude attempts. Apologies to Sorolla & Sargent... fun nonetheless
