Toulouse Complete

I thought I would warm up today by placing a few well considered strokes on  my Toulouse Lautrec painting - and ended up spending several hours refining and finishing! I consider it done now and will move on to my next subject. I have posted the finished piece and a close up of the figures. Each brushstroke gave me so much pleasure today - just concnetrating hard on shape, color and value without concern for the subject. This canvas may be too raw but I feel I am on my way again - and its a good feeling!


  1. Yes, I'd say you got right back on your horse just fine...

  2. Des couleurs généreuses, du mouvement... Une peinture qui vous ressemble.
    gros bisous
