This week’s lesson in Sharon Tomlinson’s Diary of Faces, is to investigate Romanian artist Nicolae Grigorescu (1838-1907). Most of his paintings of women wore scarves which is great practice for me. Of course, I painted two. The paint is already out, right, so why not use it?
Here is Grigorescu’s Head of a Woman.
I used left over paint from the first painting to quickly paint my version of a Head of a Woman, limiting myself to two colors and then adding the lips still using paint that was on my existing palate.
