The Casual Lover
Rococco style artwork, not exactly my favourite period of art (mainly because I have very little interest in portraits and gatherings on lawns) but in the interests of attempting something new and experimenting I present my version of Antoine Watteau's The Casual Lover, from 1716. Just the head because I doubt if I will manage to do the whole body plus trees and sky of the original, but I may complete it in say a year or so (but then again, I probably won't).

Reason: Here's another post to keep it company.
Hope I don't offend you by saying I prefer your Watteau version over the wine gums one, ha.
No wine gums ever get unloved here! The very idea that anyone might abuse one of them is appalling!
Warm up on Wednesday
Because sometimes the sketch I do before I begin my proper stuff is better than I intended.

Reason: Everyone's a critic nowadays (and the wine gums are still unloved)...
Angelo's idea of art is so unique.

Occasional Art I Adore
No long winded essay on the Rococco period of art with this one, just one painting that I am posting because it is damn gorgeous...
Young Girl Reading by Jean Honore Fragonard, 1776.
Sometimes you see a picture that makes you realise whatever aspirations you may have at being good at drawing are just laughable, this is one of those pictures...
Head of a Woman, 1473.
Not so much a bang as a whimper
Art I adore (No.2)
A few of my favourite paintings by relatively obscure artists.

Reason: Additions of an eclectic nature.
Yep, I finally did a animal picture.
I must admit I never do animal pictures because they do not interest me that much, maybe I am too engrossed in the flashy unrealism of comic art, but I did this one because I felt like it and I dedicate it to iAlissa as I miss her artwork on this forum.
