Yeah right, like he really needed my homage...
In any case, when this was finished it did remind me of the figures in certain of his rose period works.

Not sure 'like' is right for this, she looks so melancholic ....... but it's a really good painting!
How do you prepare your surface prior to top layers of paint? ... plaster? gesso?

She is thinking she has to go home and get her income tax done. Right? lol

I always look forward to your work. Itís a treat to open your threads. His rose period is a favorite of mine so yes, I see the similarity.

Mum, you say itís a really good painting. I have to assume that this is a rational response. Liking this melancholic scene is perhaps more emotionally hard to do.
Oh, this one is painted over older thingies so hence the ďpreparationĒ.
Lavender, love your humor!
Gayle, as always!

Hey HW. Another great piece but I still kinda want the old "splash-and-dash" backgrounds.

Yep, I think Picasso would have liked this one.:) I like the close-up.

I do like a lot of the work HW - colour, paint application, texture and I always like to see your works ...... it's just difficult to say 'I like this' when it's (to me) so sad!:)

It really does channel Picasso. I like the cafe environment as much as the figure.

Forgot to mention: her cigarette is put out, she was just told to do so.....

I enjoy this painting very much. Is it too bold to say I like it better than most Picasso's I've seen? There's something about it that is very attractive to the eye. And I love paintings within a painting.

I think this is great. It reminds me of Picasso Rose in style and Blue in emotion.

It also curiously makes me think of Leonardo's Mona Lisa without the smile, of course. As if Mona had been caught after the cameras stopped clicking.

Interesting, rich and very evocative.

Nice one: Lautrec and Manet would have liked her too. Well painted.
