A painting by Giovanni Boldini

Here is the next face to work on in my course on All Norah's Art.....looks pretty scarey hard to me!! We'll see what happens!

The italian artist is Giovanni Boldini (1842-1931) ....if you take a look at his beautiful work you will find some stunning pictures - he seems to have portrayed women very beautifully. Apparently he is known as the "King of Swish" because of his beautiful impressionistic brush strokes. Got to say I think this is lovely if frighteninly hard to work with but Sharon is a great teacher and her videos to help on this one are very encouraging so we will see...... :-)
