I’ve discovered that copying is like reading except it uses the parts of the mind and soul that are visually not verbally orientated. I get it we all want to make and consume unique, original work but damn when it’s a rich painting like when it’s a great book, it’s such a pleasure to experience and translate through the hand. Instead of reading ever more art theory, i’ll be conducting a Morandi seminar that will simply involve following his mind via copying lol. Non-artists totally welcome to join me, his work is extremely approachable. Super simple with subtle variations. Soo well calibrated and lovely. Showed me another level just considering every single moment in a painting (applies to all art) ☺️🥰🐤 This is based on a wonderful painting by Giorgio Morandi. Perfection. A bit of an exception with all the sharp delineation but you see the roots.
