The Value of Zorn...365 Days of Drawing

One of the many wise things Morgan Weistling said ( in his teaching workshops at Weekend With The Masters this past weekend, was if an artist wanted to really learn how to paint, he should copy Anders Zorn's etchings.

This made me really happy as I have been doing this through the yearly drawing challenge quite regularly including last night with my red BIC pen.

Alright, you got me. Can you point to a resource for Zorn etchings? Book, online, etc.

Enjoying your challenge!

My students always say that I have a "magic" brush. Haha. But I want your "magic" pen. Lovely drawing.

thank you! Rose, lots of Zorn etchings on google images. Books on his etchings too sold on Ebay.

Wow, Johanna. Congratulations on your assistance to Morgan Weistling. I wonder if he sensed you had studied Anders Zorn. In any case, it sounds like you had a wonderful week of learning.
