Let’s learn some technique – Sargent

April 9, 2012

Tomas Honz

John Singer Sargent is one of the best examples of artist with clear ability to simplifi without loss of realism.

Bruce Mcavoy, in his brilliant article, describes Sargent’s unique focus: “…identifying by the accumulation of single brushstrokes the minimal arrangement of signs necessary to produce a completely convincing reality.”

And what is the best to way to obtain an ability of an artist you admire? To copy his works. Following image is not precise copy of Sargent’s painting: Golden sail. But rather an attempt to learn his brilliant technique.
