Chico .....my entry for FOLLOWING THE MASTERS











11" x 14" (Oil on primed paper)
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.
All comments are most welcome.
