THURSDAY, 13 FEBRUARY - FACE NO 13
Quite a few people have painted Picasso-type faces for the challenge, so I thought it was a good idea to offer one myself for today's post. Because time is very tight today with various commitments, I hope you will forgive me for using a face from my sketchbook.
Sometimes I host imaginary dinner parties with people from the past that I'd like to meet. Last night I invited Picasso, and he turned up looking a bit grumpy because, after all, who am I! Thankfully it was obvious that he was just glad of the opportunity to get out for a change and have a good meal, and he soon softened.
I told him I was thinking of creating a painting along the lines of his silly distorted faces. OOOPS, that was a mistake. He went quite red and threw his Black Forest Gateau directly at my favourite Chagall print. SPLOSH!!!! 'Sorry, sorry, I didn't mean that'.
I explained that the painting was for the 29 Faces Challenge, and since he's been following all 200 or so blogs on the challenge, and getting quite a few good ideas, he showed more interest.
I showed him a quick pencil sketch of my idea, and he said 'Well OK girl, you go for it ….. but don't put my name anywhere near it'. Well I did, didn't I, but it's too late for him to do anything about it now.
And with a quick colour-change, I can show you one from my 'Blue Period'!
And with a filter change on the Glaze App, I produced this. Now there's something Pablo couldn't do, because he didn't like new-fangled technology and wouldn't buy an I-phone while he was down here.
I cut this cartoon out of a newspaper years ago, and stuck it in the front of one of my sketchbooks, and it makes me smile whenever I happen to come across it. Hope Pablo doesn't check in and see the cartoon.
