Techniques of the Old Masters: William-Adolphe Bouguereau

Over the years I´ve studied the techniques of the old masters for example in Italy. I have already before shared a few photos of my so called eternity and practicing projects. And here are some more work in progress photos from my paintings (studying the amazing Bouguereau style). In these pictures the paintings are still at early and a bit rough stage. In this point getting the right colors, shapes and balance into the canvas was the most important task before continuing to next stages or detailing.

Learning from the great old masters sure is an eternity project - but really fascinating one!

Especially William-Adolphe Bouguereau has always been one of my favorites <3
