Masters Study – Ferndinand Loyen Du Puigaudeau

“Most people are so busy knocking themselves out trying to do everything they think they should do, they never get around to do what they want to do.”
– Kathleen Winsor

Masters Study – Ferndinand Loyen Du Puigaudeau

2.6″ x 3.5″ Watercolor & Gouache ATC

This one was really hard, if I remember correctly.  I couldn’t find a link for the original painting by Ferndinand Loyen Du Puigaudeau.   I have a copy, but if I post it here, Facebook will pick it up in my automatic feed and I don’t want any misunderstandings.  If you want to see the original, I can email it to you.  If you can find it, please put a link in your comment.  How weird is that?

But… while looking for it, I saw many of his other paintings that I would love to try.  🙂

My friend, Gwyn, found the painting!  Here is a link.  Thanks, Gwyn!

Here is the original, which really shows how green I was!  😀

About Kathleen Winsor

American author Kathleen Winsor is best known for the racy historical novel, Forever Amber, which made a huge splash when it was first published in 1944, selling 100,000 copies the first week. It was banned in 14 states for its sexual content. The ensuing debate contributed to the loosening of restrictions that allowed works by D. H. Lawrence and Henry Miller to be published in the US. Winsor wrote a number of other novels, none as successful. She was born in 1919 and died in 2003.

    I never heard of this artist, so I have nothing to compare this to. Of course I could go and google him, but haven’t yet.

    In the meantime, I’m enjoying your painting on it’s own. I love the impressionistic style and the beautiful colors.

      Thanks, Carol. I googled him and looked forever and still couldn’t find it again. I do have a copy on my hard drive, just to remind me that I didn’t dream it up. ha ha 🙂

    Beth, this is a lovely, special little jewel of a painting. I have never heard of du Puigandeau so I am going to research him tomorrow. I learn so much from my fellow bloggers. Thank you!

      Hi Linda! Thanks for your comment. I have been so busy I haven’t been around to everybody’s blogs as much as I like lately, but I agree with you so much! I learn a lot from all of you! 🙂

    This is very beautiful and soft, Beth. I could not find this particular painting, either but viewed many images of his work under images. You captured the essence of his impressionistic style, laying color next to color. I was struck by the wonderful texture and movement he was able to capture in his work. Thank-you for introducing me to him as I had never heard of him.
    Your quote, today, is SO RIGHT ON the mark! It seems I have come full circle. I used to do what I was supposed to do, first, and had very little time to explore my interests. Now? It is all I can do to catch up on the “supposed to dos” as I just fit them in here and there. 🙂 Good post!

      Thanks so much, Leslie! Isn’t he a wonderful artist? I wish I had seen some of the paintings I saw today, when I was doing these studies. I really like his texture and movement, too.

      I’m looking forward to when I can come full circle and do less of the have-to stuff and more of the want-to stuff. 😀
