Masters Study – Crop from The Red Dog by Paul Gauguin
2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor & Gouache ATC
I guess you can tell that I didn’t have time to paint anything last weekend. Here is another study I did in 2008. I learned so much doing this. I can still remember that I worked on that white dress forever!
A link to the original Gauguin painting is here.
