Watercolour, Waterford 250 gr, Size 33 x 25 cms.
Inspiration for this painting was Kees van Dongen "The Two Cousins". I just love the loose, free, imaginative, semi abstract approach to portraiture of some of the artists of that era.

I cannot paint realistic portraits in a fit, so have decided to be different and used Amadeo Modigliani's painting as an inspiration.
I really admire his free, semi-abstract approach to portraiture, even exaggeration, "simplification" yet bringing the focal features forward
