New School Color - Casey Klahn
That's beautiful. It really captures the combination of vigour and sensitivity I so admire in Degas
Thanks, Melanie. Kind words, indeed.I was complaining to myself @ how this is a skewed candid shot, and that the background is in process - but I still must have liked it enough to post.
I like this too. It is always a good exercise to do master copies now and again. Hope you had a great thanksgiving.
We had an awesome Thanksgiving, Corrine. I wish you a merry Christmas, now, too.
Looks like you've got Degas' stroke down, Casey - your marks here are really reminiscent of his. Very nice work, and glad to hear that you had a great holiday.
That's high praise, since I hold Degas among my top few all time masters. Thanks, Brian. One thing I opted to do was to not grid the image, but to do the whole thing free hand. I'll post the final as soon as we get the photo.Happy holidays to you and your family, Brian.
this for me is so sad; beautifully endowed with a sadness; it reminds me of a woman i know; she wouldn't mind if i said so; that darkness in her rising up.
Thanks for looking in, mansuetude!
Degas is great with figures, isn't he? I especially enjoy studying his work in person at the Portland Art Museum.I agree with what others have said, that like Degas, your lines show no timidity. Great!
The Portland Museum has some awesome collection. I guess they have a Rothko, too?Thanks for commenting, Katherine. I've been enjoying your blog, especially the tale of replaced pastels!
Very nice indeed.
