Experiment

I love Milt Kobayashi's work. He paints such facinating characters. I wanted to experiment and try his style. It was actually harder than it looks and no way can I compare but it was fun. c2009

I love Kobiashi's worktoo. Yours is wonderful. Fabulous color and brushwork. You really got the express and gesture. The nose is right on.

LOL Bev, Actually I have paintings like this from college 35 years ago so I am really going back to my roots, just with oils instead of watercolors.

Thanks Miss Liz, You are a blessing!

Thanks, Pattie! Actually as i was telling Bev. I used to paint women similar to this in college 35 years ago, darn I could be Milt if I had kept painting! Always a bridesmaid never a bride!
