Copying the masters

Do you do this?  I like to look at something and try to draw/paint it as a way to practice and improve.   Here is a picture I "copied" from a children's book.   What are your thoughts on this practice?  I was thinking it is ok for my personal journal.  But now that I have been blogging etc and reading things I really would like input on what is "appropriate"  I think that it may still be ok but that I should keep a record of where I saw the image and make sure it is noted somewhere in my journal.  What do you think?
