Friday Faves: Masters Remade

17 Feb

If you’ve ever taken an art class, I’m sure you’ve copied the work of a “master”.  Redrawing and painting great works of art is one of the tried and true methods used to teach basic skills.  I love the way some artists are taking masterworks and recreating them in fun and interesting ways.  Check ’em out!

Have a fantastic weekend, Artsies!  Any plans for museum visits this weekend?

    Girl w Pearl Earring broken link.😦 Hope you fix soon… I love that painting!
    As a Frida fan, my heart is lightened seeing the Frida dog… but where’s the unibrow!

    I love the style of the 1st painting. I have always wondered what a modern renaissance would look like. I have always loved the feel and richness of that style.

      Thanks, Jess, will get the link fixed today! Just finished a Frida Kahlo biography, so that one is dear to my heart, as well.
