If you are an artist, then in essence you have been fascinated by the work of one or more artists who have inspired you. I tend to sit for hours together, admire and ponder how some of my favorite artists achieve the effects, the inspiration and the passion in their work. It is never easy to achieve and imitation and repeating some of their masterpieces tells you the level of patience and effort gone into the work. Along those lines any help to accelerate that learning process is typically appreciated. As an artist we do tend to get wrapped in the style which lies within our comfort zone. It is hard to push to adopt another style. Nevertheless I find that it exposes me to new techniques, ideas and visions to view the subject you paint. The Forger’s Masterclass is a TV show hosted by John Myatt a British art forger from the 90’s who takes you through the styles and techniques on different painters as he tutors three candidates through a few hours of a class. I wouldn’t say he is well versed in the styles of all the different painters but I do believe he inspires one to be open to new techniques. There are about a dozen episodes on YouTube which artists could benefit from. I definitely found it useful.
