The benefits of Master Copy Studies
Hi, this is a recent master copy study of Master Sin Jong Hun. While I get criticized because I make it look way to similar to the original whenever I post my study online, I had to admit that I learned a lot just from this 1 study. I am not a landscape painter and I currently learning how to create my own landscape from imagination. However, doing this study make me believe that I could achieve this level of detail someday in the future. I followed Hun’s workflows, and I learnt about the composition, the technical aspects, the texture, the details, how to do trees, mountains, grass, flowers, and houses. I started to understand how the atmospheric perspective and how the color changes with it. It is incredible dissecting the artwork and understanding how the master do it. I highly recommend artist who is working on landscape to study this piece and other detailed master works.
How intentional were your changes in the tree structures? Your study is well done. I do have a preference for the original swelling out around the point of tree branches. I feel like you straightened the large tree in the foreground. This and a few other distinct differences look like you learned from but also were willing to make it your own (chimney, lamp, house back further...) I love the study.
