So I’ve noticed recently, a few of my mates think it’s wrong to do studies of other’s work, but there’s nothing I like more on a hungover train journey than to sit down and do studies. I think it gets you thinking more about they way they have produced the work, and by comparing your study to their original, you can work out what you often do wrong in pieces. You wouldn’t attempt to make new recipe, without trying out a few other’s first, would you? It’s the same with studies, you’re not claiming it as your own, just seeing how other’s do it.
