Rose in the Style of Picasso

Picasso Rose

8x6in  oil on canvas board   100.

Painting in the style of means not copying an artist's actual painting, but coming up with your own interpretation...which is much easier and fun!
Picasso produced an immense output of work. I have read it is over 20,000 pieces, which boggles my mind.  His creative versatility and the ability to continually develop new stylistic resources, led him along the path of having as many critics as admirers.
I am an admirer - his work has never bored me.

"There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterwards you can remove all traces of reality."
Pablo Picasso
