Homage to Henri Fantin-Latour

I decided to celebrate the first day of 2013 with a gouache to hopefully set the tone for doing more paintings during the year ahead. I chose a detail from a wonderful painting by Henri Fantin-Latour (shown below) because I needed something to copy. At present I am not in the mood for doing anything original or challenging. This was challenging enough as the paper is too rough, but I am satisfied with it, so that's saying something!

Happy New Year to all who stop by my blog.

What a beautiful painting, dear Anne. I like that you chose this small piece of the larger and your details are exquisite! You are starting out at a run. Me? Not so much.

Thanks Sherry! I couldn't imagine trying a homage on the full work. Keep going - we'll get there in the end. x0x.
