Repin copy

This is one of the first Ilya Repin paintings I'd seen and I really liked it.  I imagine Francis Vallejo is the one who brought it to my attention on his blog.  Repin is definitely a fine choice for an illustrator to do master copies from.  I decided to sit and work out a detail in pastel...I got about 60 minutes into it and had to leave for work.  I may do more of these, it was fun!

Love this painting. Repin was the man.
