"Amedeus Modigliani"


A couple of months ago I sketched out watercolor sketch of what I thought Modigliani might have looked like had he used his personal style to create a self-portrait.

Today I decided to go ahead with my plan to do the same again, only this time on canvas panel with acrylics. It's part of my ongoing learning curve with drawing, acrylic technique, and art in general.

  8. What a beautiful tribute to Modigliani. The woman is very mysterious and haunting. I love her eyes. They're very enigmatic and intense.
