Hello artist buddies and shy lurkers
Henri Rousseau - a well known artist will be out friend in studies these next two weeks.
Wikipedia starts off with these salient facts.......
Henri Julien Félix Rousseau (May 21, 1844 – September 2, 1910) was a French Post-Impressionist painter in the Naive or Primitive manner. He was also known as Le Douanier (the customs officer) after his place of employment. Ridiculed during his life, he came to be recognized as a self-taught genius whose works are of high artistic quality.
They also mention that though he was famous for painting jungles, he never left France.
Please, take some time the next two weeks to study Rousseau, copy or imitate him and share your adventure with us.
As a special challenge, how's about we each do a self portrait on a tiger or animal of our choice in Rousseau's naive style. WHAT FUN, eh?
