In the style of … Cézanne


That's lovely, Frank.

Excellent, Frank. I recognised you immediately.

Such fine work, and I recognised you straight away from your profile pic. I like the way each brush stroke can be seen. Terrific work.

This is v good Frank and interesting to read your comments

Thanks everyone, this was another challenge set by our art group (well me actually), to paint something “In the Style of …”. Since we moved our activities to Facebook due to the pandemic, our membership has grown and we are now having to limit membership to our physical meetings, as we can’t get any more people in the room we hire safely.

This is a great portrait, Frank - I love the palette and the bold brush-strokes.

This is brilliant Frank, great portraiting skill -love it.

Very good portrait Frank.

Really good portrait, Frank!

Hello Frank 👋

Great selfie Frank. Some marvellous tones used especially on the face.

Thanks again everyone. Thanks Karen, I’ve tried to recreate the tones used by Cézanne. Hello Faye 👋😀
