I got up close and got a very good look at Cezanne's "Still Life with Milk Jug" that I had recently painted from a very bad newspaper image. The actually painting was much darker and richer in color than I had expected (aren't they almost always?!). I enjoyed looking at the way he laid down the paint and trying to figure out exactly the process he used as opposed to how I did it. I'm jealous of the folks that can sit in the Louvre and gaze at the masterpiece as they try to replicate it. And I understand now how much one can learn by doing so.
