copy of hals

copying old master works is a valuable learning tool. here is the beginning of my attempt to copy franz hals "malle babbe" (the witch of harlem) a painting from about 1635. i started with a dulled sienna tone overall. much of what appears to be light is glare on wet paint. oil on raymar canvas panel, 12x10".
