Gwen John - another woman, from Wales -

here is a brief overview of her art, a Wikipedia link and some images.

If you are new to this thread, we study, copy or imitate a different artist for two weeks. Any medium. Hope to see you around.

What is this? A ten year affair with Rodin? I thought that was Camile Claudel. I guess it was both of them :eek: Guess he got around, when he wasn't sculpting.

Her work is lovely and here is the video...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oXaN70a6Z8s

She will be a good one to do. :heart:

I like Gwen John. Her cat studies are great.

I just discovered one of her cat studies, watercolour about 6 by 8 ins, went for $35,000 (22,000) in a Christie's auction!! Amazing:wink2:

Managed to do a copy of one of Gwen John's cats this morning. I liked using the more muted colour scheme.:wave:

Watercolours, 6 by 8 ins, paperwave paper.

A lot of personality in that face...intrigued by whatever she's seeing, and ready to move ( if needs be )!
