Phil Hale Master Study

Last term I taught a Painting From The Masters class. The students would pick one illustrator and one fine artist, and recreate their favorite painting from that master. As a demonstration I picked Phil Hale's "Poorly Casanova" painting. It was a great painting to copy, I learned a lot recreating it. I painted it at 13x20, the Phil Hale original is 38x70.


  1. Thanks for the post Lucas. Your stuff is looking great as always. I once did the Hale same study too only my results weren't as cool as this.

  2. Really? I never saw it. Did you post it on your blog? Hale is the man!

  3. God damn. That is amazing. Been meaning to do a copy of my own lately :)
