Masters Study – Pablo Picasso – Portrait d’ Utrillo

2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor and Gouache ATC

This was amazing!  Here is a link to the original.  It looked so simple and easy and it wasn’t.  I worked and worked at it and had a ball!  I enjoyed the background, too.  I love Picasso!   I did his self portrait, too.  I’ll show you that tomorrow.  🙂

About Don Sutton

American Major League baseball player Don Sutton, never a flashy player, was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame after an amazingly consistent winning career as a pitcher. He was born in Alabama in 1945, and broke into the big leagues at age 21. By the time he retired in 1988, he had won 324 games, recorded more than 3,500 strikeouts, racked up a record 21 consecutive 100-plus strikeout seasons, and never missed his turn in the pitching rotation. He is now a TV announcer for the Washington Nationals.

    Wow very impressive it looks almost exactly like the original. Picasso made a ton of art, I bet you could find some more that you’d like to paint.

    Ha! I can’t count the times I’ve heard people go “ugh” to Picasso, followed by “I can do that.” I chuckle again after reading how difficult it was for you to work from one of his paintings and try to emulate what he did. You did very well, indeed!
