Study for a copy of Manet's 'Bar at the Folie Bergere.'
Another pic from my temporarily lost sketchbook. A sketch for one of my few forays in acrylics/ oils, a copy of the great man's masterpiece. This is watercolour on very thin sketch book paper, perhaps not the best way to make such a sketch, I was trying to see if I could get a reasonable copy of the girl. I saw this painting in the late 1960's, it birthed my interest in 'fine art'. Up to then I'd only been interested in illustration. A5 sketchbook.
About the Artist
Self taught. Love drawing. Like to make pictures up, without using reference pics, often in cartoon style. I do other pictures where I do use reference. I'm knocking on a bit, born in 1940 in Greenwich, London. Retired, and loving it.View full profile
