Louis le Brocquy, artist 1916 – 2012

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. Visit: Unfortunately his website is difficult to navigate but it’s worth the visit. Louis le Brocquy obituary, in The Guardian
