After the Bath late this afternoon. This is my first pass and I'm considering it a good start. My objective was to do my best to achieve some of Sorolla's super-strong sunlight. (I say "some" because everyone knows no one but Sorolla can paint like Sorolla! It's almost silly for me to even say his name!) Still, many painters seek to understand by copying a great painting; I'm no exception. So, onward.
Gamblin Fastmatte red transparent oxide to mass in general shapes. (Sorolla had no Gamblin Fastmatte!)
Painting: Celeste Bergin, After the Bath (after Sorolla), oil on 16x20 canvas panel
