We learn by copying, then going off on our own. Taking off the trainer-wheels, so to speak.
The trick is not to take credit for something someone else pioneered. I found the model for the above, online, and thought it had some merit to learn from. Soft facial, solid background. I forget who painted it. Someone famous and very good, which harks back to the old saying, "Half of originality is remembering the prose but forgetting who said it."
Then write. If it's good, you'll find out. If it's not, throw it out of the window.”
― William Faulkner
