Missing The Point

I've got sketchbooks full of studies from great artwork - it was something my various professors strongly encouraged, and something I encouraged my students to do. Here's a page of studies I just made where I challenged myself to create recognizable reproductions that were completely pointless in terms of learning anything significant about the artwork in question. The Rothko kind of fails at completely failing, as the values tell you a little something about the work. I think the Monet most satisfactorily succeeds at failing to convey anything meaningful about the painting in question.
