In the report they describe the stlye of painting, strokes used, colors
subject matter etc., then they are asked to create the next painting of that
artist using Craypas (oil pastels). This next painting sometimes finds them
taking parts of many different paintings and creating another landscape, or
horse race, lilly pond, or still life.
They create a new composition but they use the subject matter of the artist.
This is copying with a purpose of creating a new picture with common
resources. This kind of copying I feel lets them explore the stlye the artist
but they have to recreate his/her world with their own subject matter. I may
be wrong but this is how I do it.
