This is my entry for Michelle Burnett's blog Following The Masters. The current challenge is devoted to Robert Henri. This is my humble attempt at his masterpiece "Boy with a green cap (or Chico)". It was only when I was painting that I realised what must have gone into the original. It was very difficult for me to get the skin tones as fresh as they are in the original. Indeed DOING IS KNOWING. This was a great learning experience.
This is not an attempt at copying one of Mr. Mulick's paintings. But, I must confess that it was only after going through his beautiful books on watercolour that I realised that beauty can be found in the most mundane and humble subjects. I guess I owe Mulick Sir in more ways than one.
