It’s okay to copy someone else’s work, just don’t claim it as your own.

We learn by copying – understanding the artist’s technique can improve our own, and we understand better how the artist created the mood/feeling he/she wanted in the painting. In this example I believe the mood is captured primarily by the shapes such as the tilt of the head, the colour is mostly decorative. tell me what you think…
