Another exercise and another new painting.

The lecture I attended today explained why Willem De Kooning's paintings of women are so grotesque.  A hard childhood expresses itself in many ways.  His work is difficult to copy, for sure.  I did think I could learn something about brush strokes from looking at his paintings.  I tried his

"Doorway to the River" and did learn more about how I brush paint onto the canvas.
