In this video, William Schneider explains the modern technology avaiable today to assist in doing this in your studio, rather than in a museum, and explains the methods he uses to first render a head originally painted by Master Artist Anders Zorn in charcoal and then using the limited palette of colors, made famous by Zorn, to do the alla prima oil painting.
