I still stand by my previous statement that I enjoy doing master copies. However, they have all been time consuming. I am working on the most difficult yet. It is a carravaggio.

It is as though all the different parts are cramped yet appeare to be roomy and relaxed. It is taking a long time to merely map things out over the page in my notebook.
