Monkey see, monkey do.

Standard

I’m still learning to paint abstract figures.  This week’s assignment titled “Copy to Learn, Learn to Copy” means we are to copy the style of two other famous abstract figurative painters using our own models and then create paintings in each of their styles. My first “emulation” was of the artist Nathan Oliveira‘s work.  This is my son, Devon.

The second painting is a full body portrait but it’s a nude, so the model (my husband) said I had to heavily crop it for public viewing.  It’s styled after paintings by the artist Kim Froshin.
