This is my entry for the latest Daily Paintworks challenge. To paint like someone whose work you admire. I started out painting like Dreama Tolle Perry than changed to Julie Ford Oliver. I ended up painting like me. I can usually identify an artist's work. Maybe it's like writers and singers they are the experts on themselves. I have heard imitators and they are usually close. I wonder if you can tell the difference between Cher and her many imitators. Can you identify the real Elvis?
I once heard about an artist who had problems with people imitating her style. She had her lawyer send letters to these imitators. This artist had a style that was easily imitated. The artists I tried to imitate have more technical skills that are harder to copy. There is nothing like the real thing.
