                        REPLICATIING A SARGENT PAINTING     I have been  doing a workshop with an internally known artist replicating the John Singer Sargent painting "CARNATION, LILY, LILY, ROSE".  It is an absolutely beautiful and intricate scene of two young girls in the flower garden at dusk as they light paper lanterns. Painted in 1885-1886, it is actually one of his most famous paintings.  I have chosen to replace Sargent's two girls with my two granddaughters.  They are about the same age and it makes the painting much more personal for me. The  painting will be the centerpiece for my new art studio (mentioned in an earlier blog) and I am very excited!     The original painting was 60 x 64 but we are doing a smaller version.  I chose to do one that is 36 x 40 which is the same proportions as the original.  We didn't have time to stretch a canvas (this is not a regulation size) so I purchased a 4 x 8 sheet of birch plywood (1/4" thickness) at the lumber sto
