Portraits of Sylvette. Sylvette was a young woman with a pony tail that he painted many, many times and in many styles. I picked out eight images and tried to put them in some kind of order that made sense to me going from most conventional to most abstract. It was interesting to copy each drawing to try to understand how he "abstracted" images. Still not a fan of this style.
Detail of the painting "Boy with a Pipe" from Picasso's "rose" period. I liked this painting a lot. In fact Picasso painted many pieces which were more traditional and I did like them. And last--the piece de resistance (LOL) my own self portrait ala Picasso's blue period.
Hey it's not easy to paint yourself blue and looking so solemn. I learned a lot about Picasso and changed my opinion of his art.
