When I copy, I often feel like I'm not seeing the forest for the trees, and I often lose my place in all the details as I'm looking back and forth between my painting and the original. Today I allowed my self to get lost in the details, but I didn't really feel lost. I worked on the cloth on the left again, and on the pitcher. Looking at it on my computer tonight, I think I'm on the right track. The top of the pitcher still needs some work, but the cloth is beginning to shape up.
I enjoyed talking to lots of visitors today. One of them told me she thought Cézanne would approve! Then she said, "Or maybe not!" I thought that was pretty funny.
