I find the best way to study a painting and to really learn from it is to attempt painting it. And doing it on a small scale (this one is 3"x3") forces me to simplify. This solid composition translates well to the mini scale, so then it's basically a matter of looking at the shading. Where is the light coming from? Where will the highlights hit? Even my tiniest brush can't allow me to fuss with details. This aims to capture the movement, the "feel" and the composition- in 45 minutes or less!

I love recreating old hunt scenes in my quasi-folk style. See a few more of mine at this link.
