John Singer Sargent had a great painting "style", this one reminds me of his style. Maybe it is because I look at so much of his work, it seems that all the artists I like paint very similar. JLC

Hi John, I like your work, will link you on my blog. I was taught(many years ago) by a close friend of JSS, I love his work too and this piece is beautiful in its simplicity.

That is very fortunate! Most of what I know of Sargent and his technique, came from the notes left by his students. Stanley Olson's "His Portrait" is a great book on his life. JLC
