Painting process

So then I decide I need to be a whole lot more free in my painting expression. I found a wonderful artist named Mario Zampedroni  and I tried to copy his style. Thinking back, how can anyone develop a "free", impressionistic style by rigidly following another artist's example? The over-all look of this painting is ok, but this was one of my last paintings before I took up jewelry making again. Working with clay and wire has proved to be a whole lot more forgiving and allowed me to correct mistakes with a still good quality finish.

This is the painting that I copied from. I have to say I really, really enjoyed painting this and love all of his paintings.
