A tree against a wall; Soutine

*



A tree against a wall, oil on card, 10 x 7.7 cm




This seems to be the smallest scale I can happily work on. The small scale has the effect of exaggerating the importance of individual brush strokes.

I have been looking at Soutine's work online: I wish I could see more of his pictures in their originals: they seem extraordinary.

  2. Very nice! The blue sky and white wall remind me rather of some of Winslow Homer's tropical watercolors.
