Heya sturm,

You might fix your links, I can get to them by copying and pasting the urls, but just clicking would be easier ~ regarding the color differences, you know, in total honesty I have not seen these pictures in person, so really don't know what to tell you except that the first seems oversaturated, and the second under (the third I think is too brown). Frankly color is pretty easy to adjust, but I would go for something midway between the first and second reproductions you linked ~ you might try just taking the first (because it is larger) and desaturating it just a bit until it more closely resembles the second.

I know this is ambiguous, but unfortunately, it's the best I can do with respect to freely available reproductions.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Hi again, everyone.

Joining this OFDW18 frenzy, but more slowly ...

I took all evening just to get this far, using a grid for the first time for a reasonably accurate start on #3; a very detailed painting, but my favourite.

(You folk who have practically finished! Amazing... )

 
  06 June 2006
Whoa, whoa, people, slow down! Let the rest of us catch up!

Great stuff so far, particularly digitalsol and zhuzhu (don't you ever sleep?) Junpei's is also turning out really well, looking forward to seeing how that one will turn out.

I'm going to do the 'St. Cecilia' one...{dolly parton mode} ''It's just too purty!''{/dollymode]
 
  06 June 2006
Ah, so many entries already! :) Good work, people, very nice starts too.

I am considering Hals, and Velázquez's Juan de Pareja.

Rebecca, seeing how we have Velázquez, would it be possible to include -- or if I would go for -- Pope Innocent X? It's a personal favourite of mine, and a fine painting as well, also a good choice for a study.

Zhushu, Digi, Mal, YMS and all! Nice (and fast) progress here

I´m still in "Tiger-land" and will have to wait with this OFDW. But I´ll keep up with your work, and maybe I´ll be around in a week or so.

Becca - sorry to kepp the old OFDW open on overtime. I was a bit optimistic about time thinking I would be able to finish two "masterpieces" in a month

C´ya!

Ugh, everyone else is doing so good.
I'm kind of happy with it so far, not much left to do though other than refining the clothes and such. Maybe I'll do 2 of them then
