When I was a new bug at art school I used to sit in seminars looking at slide projections of all these artists and movements that I’d never heard of (Delaunay was in a sub-sect of cubism called orphism). Sometimes I’d try to copy the works. This painting below was one I had a go at. Picking an original with plenty of straight lines, & employing a grid make it seem as though the copying will be relatively easy; it’s not, it’s always a lot harder than you might think. But it’s not the drawing, it’s the colour matching where the skill lies; fakery is an art form in its own right, one I’d quite like to get involved in. You could take good money off people who must have too much of it, making it a victimless crime, and there’d be the satisfaction of knowing you have applied craftmanship to your skullduggery, that you are the sort of villain people would be able to look up to, if only you didn’t have to go about your business incognito.
