Jean Honoré Fragonard was known for his incredible facility in painting. I tried to learn something from this great master by attempting to recreate one of his pictures in oils (see below).

During a recent trip to the Wallace Collection in London, I saw the original up close. What a difference my experience was, compared to simply viewing the image online!
