Artist Kelly Foss has just completed her second master copy of a John Singer Sargent painting at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The results speak for themselves.
Ms. Foss teaches oil painting at Drawing New York on Monday and Tuesday evenings in our Gramercy Park studio. You can register for her classes here.
She is also a content contributor to our website writing articles that provide valuable insight into the mind of an artist, their process and their needs.
This amazing process shot was taken by a passerby at the Metropolitan Museum of Art while Ms. Foss painted on site.
“Here’s my master copy painting of John Singer Sargent’s “The Wyndham Sisters”. My favorite place, the @metmuseum was gracious to allow me to paint this 30″ x 30″ (76.2 x 76.2 cm) piece in front of the massive 8ft x 10ft original hanging in the @metamericanwing . 💙 I was immersed in JSS’s color usage and brushwork as well as reading a book about the ladies (Those Wild Wyndams) to get me into the headspace of the sitters. 8 sessions at the Met and then finished in the studio, this was a whirlwind painting for me.”
Oh yeah, we mentioned this was her second master copy. Here is a picture of the stunning first one she created.
