Sargent Study again

Despite my low moral doing these (how good can you feel about yourself studying a Sargent painting), I actually do enjoy doing these. The palette is limited (at least that's how it looks, it might just be the reproductions), so it's interesting to see how he went about doing temperature shifts with a warm palette, and how he was reserved in his values. This was a looser painting, so I tried to paint it smaller on my screen to force myself to avoid noodeling. I still noodled, just less than normal.
