12" X 12" , Oil on Canvas. After David Leffel. David Leffel is one of the great masters of oil painting of these days. His use of light, composision, movement, colour and brush work are truely testimony of the great masters of old.

To paint like the great masters is to paint...life. Whatever genre; impressionism, realism, abstract, they are all braught to life with their use of colour, light & shadow, application of paint to the canvas. Oh, to create like them, is a painters prayer.

When I saw this picture and what you said, I had to comment. In most respects I agree with what you say about the picture, it is wonderfully done, but if I may suggest to truly be impressed do you know of an artist who can paint with the same skill with both hands:)? I do, his name is Frank Frazetta and I'm sure you have heard of him, after his stroke he pretty much lost the use of his right hand for painting because it was shaking too much, so he retaught himself to paint with his left hand and believe me its hard trying to distinguish which is a right hand painting and a left. That is someone you should look at:)

Oh I LOVE painting :). Love going to museums where they have all these beautiful rennaisance, baroque, impressionist, etc ... paintings :). And I admire whoever can paint even just a little bit like the great masters of the past few centuries.
