TUESDAY, 25 FEBRUARY - FACE 26
Great day today - we managed to get out, it was sunny and we were able to go to the Matisse exhibition at the Atkinson Gallery. This is the first time we have been out for almost two weeks because of minor health problems for my other half. Minor it may have been, but it involved so much time that I have been very slow in visiting other '29 Facers' and commenting, and I do apologise for that because I love visiting. I set aside yesterday afternoon to visit and comment …….. and then we had visitors, welcome visitors, but once again no commenting. I'll be with you asap.
So I doubly enjoyed the Matisse Exhibition and the chance to sketch in the Gallery. Today's Face 26 is drawn on my I-Pad with the Brushes App. Not exact, but I was pleased to manage it using Brushes. I'm sure Matisse would have loved an I-Pad, especially when he was older and in a wheelchair - but probably it would have stopped him doing his cut-outs.
I can't make out whether the poor girl has grown two sets of horns, or is perhaps wearing a helmet, and I don't think her necklace design is going to be stocked in the jewellery section. With her lush, thick plaits and those horns she looks a bit like a Wagner heroine to me.
