Another Friday Another Fake

15 May

I joined in with the Facebook Cheese and Wine Painting Club again this lunchtime, to have a go at painting Picasso’s Portrait of a Girl in a Red Beret. This week I painted on paper rather than canvas; a sheet of vintage paper I stretched beforehand. It’s good fun but I also learn a lot by studying these classics. There’s probably a couple more hours of work to do on this tomorrow. It’s challenging to adapt to another artist’s style; this week I had to stop myself from tidying up Picasso’s brushstrokes which are quite messy!

The Cheese and Wine Painting Club is hosted by Ed Sumner Art on Facebook every Friday lunchtime and next week it’s Edvard Munch’s The Scream. The session is free for those who can’t afford it and a donation if you can manage it.
