as you can see i have listed some very different examples of artist’s work.

you can choose others  who you wish to study.

on day one we will deconstruct an artist who i will choose , and then your job is to go online and go to the library and find an artist whose work you like, and bring those in to class on the second week

Start gathering your own subjects to paint in the style of his work.
