neo fauvist face

I recently went to an exhibition of fauvist art. Actually, all of the art was from one extraordinary artist Kees Van Dongen. (These links are to wikipedia and I’m sure you’ll find lots more images if you just google him.) The colours are rich, intense, startling even today – mesmerizing.

Since I’m getting back to – shall we call it analog painting? or physical painting? anyway, I was thinking of that fauvist art as I experimented with this small (6″x6″) acrylic on canvas piece.
