Painter at the Musee d'Orsay

Here is another painting I did from a photo I took while visiting the Musee d'Orsay in Paris. I found the painters who were there copying the masters to be just as fascinating as the works of art on display. I have many photos of these painters that will probably end up as paintings. Some were students, others I think were professional copiers.
