after picasso, good cheer

when copying from masterworks, it is common practice to sign 'after' whomever, and your name. this is a great way to learn and used in art school. anyhoo, not only did i copy picasso's 'woman with yellow hair', i got in a great mood from doing it! the lyrical lines, complementary colors used, his childlike simplicity, her peaceful repose, there is actually a lot going on here. deceptively simple, i believe. the more i study, the more i like about art.
