    The idea is to choose a piece of art that is at least one hundred years old by an artist who would be considered a master in his craft. Master studies allow you to learn the techniques of the masters by copying their works. You can do a detailed, finished copy or something looser that focuses on one or more specific areas like composition, value, color, etc.

    Here's a good video on YouTube by Noah Bradley about the purpose and practice of master studies:

    Here's an excellent Web site for looking up masters by name, century, movement, etc.:

      Noah Bradley is an awesome guy and talented digital painter. I have met him several times at Gen Con and he is always a consummate professional and genuinely good guy. Good call on the video reference. He's done some amazing backgrounds and artwork for CCGs and such.

        Here's my charcoal pencil study of a Tiepolo painting. The composition got out of whack, so I cut it short. I meant to get more into the value differences. I'll measure better next time.

          So I just recently discovered Arthur Rackham and I am completely mind blown by his work... Thought I'd try a quick ink study
          based on one of his paintings.

            Thought I'd study Vincent van Gogh and learned it's not a simple matter of copying his mark making technique. I'd benefit from a more in depth study...

              Very nice detail and use of values on the tree. I looked Rackham up because the name sounded familiar. I thought maybe Proko or one of the other art YouTube channels mentioned him. Then I saw he illustrated "Alice in Wonderland" which I read recently. So that's probably where I saw his name.

                Funny that when I saw Nanashi's piece before I looked at who posted it, I assumed it was you. It seemed like your kind of thing. But you went off in a different direction. Nice job doing your own thing in a master's style. If I'd have had to guess, I might have answered Munch before van Gogh. They have similar styles.

                  I had a storybook with Arthur Rackham illustrations that creeped me out as a child. Charles Vess always reminded me of his work. Masters made me think of Dutch Masters, which made me think of those ridiculous hats they wore. So here's a Double Dutch Master, Jan Van Goyen painted by Gerard ter Borch.

                    Nice job, ChrisH. I don't think I've heard of Gerard ter Borch, but some of my favorite masters are Dutch. I started a Rembrandt study months ago, but I wanted to do something fresh for this challenge. Besides, I'm liking Spanish masters a lot lately.
