girl bleue

I love paintings done in the same tone. Or close to the same tone, just in different values. One really needs very little detail. Funny how certain moods almost warrant a lot of detail, while other moods beg for a few simple strokes of color. Van Gogh had his blue period, as did Picasso, Renoir, and Goya (only his was a black period)... I guess you could say this is from my blue period - except I'm no longer blue, and I don't have my period. :o)


  1. Hahahaha :D C'est vraiment beau!!!!!

  2. LOL - Look at that "you're a poet and you don't know it" Great piece Pauline, a lot of subtleties in the face. Phil
