Reproductions of Famous Art

The Shipwreck

This is a reproduction of The Shipwreck by Joseph Turner. I painted it on a 22″ x 30″ stretched canvas.

It’s the first time I have ever tried to paint this kind of water. Very challenging for me. I really think it came out well, though.

The Flaming June, by Lord Frederick Leighton

Oil on canvas, about 30″ square. I tried to use the glazing technique, painting the dress in red, and then painting a translucent yellow over the top.______________________________________
