Irish artist Louis le Brocquy died last month, I’d forgotten how good he was, I don’t know if he hung out with Bacon and Freud but his work is quite similar. I’m currently learning to paint watercolour portraits the Charles Reid way, Louis le Brocquy has a surprisingly similar watercolour style, …although Charles Reid seems to be more cheerful in personality.

I did not feel like doing a lunch time sketch today so I watched my favourite art series by Simon Schama. This week it’s Picasso’s turn.
Another of Simon Schama’s wonderful series, this time it’s about the life of Vincent van Gogh.
