Copying Masters (4) – Another Cézanne

The original:

Farmhouse and Chestnut Trees at Jas de Bouffan, circa 1884, oil on canvas

My copy:

Cezanne landscape study, acrylic
Cezanne Landscape Study, acrylic, 16 x 12, 2016

Cézanne’s original is packed with details, there’s subtle changes of color and value on every plane of the house. The trees are built with expressive but economic strokes. I got lost among the leaves.
