Gulf Man

Diane Mannion, GULF MAN, 6x6" oil
An exercise for my class tomorrow, the figure in the landscape... will have students paint from black and white snapshots and make up the color from imagination and memory.  This study reminds me of Henry Hensche's Mud Heads from the Cape Cod School of Art.  Hensche had students paint outside in the sun and really push color! Sold.
