Finally, the real reason I got motivated to post. I just found out tonight that the mighty Lucian Freud passed on yesterday. I deeply admire the way he painted it like he saw it and while it may not have always been flattering to the model it was always a beautiful work. I was lucky enough to see a retrospective of his work at the Tate on my last big pre-kids vacation and it was amazing.
A quick one I sketched off the back photo from the book Man with a Blue Scarf by art critic Martin Gayford.
