collecting colours over a cup of coffee...

If you are a lover of printed words, you would know how much of your time is taken by books alone. Then one day, sooner or later, you discover a huge vacuum within that you know next to nothing about other art forms. This blog is an attempt to fulfil one such lacunae in the art of painting. We intend to look up a random painting and upload it with a link here every day whilst having our daily cuppa coffee. In this way at least we hope to be better acquainted with colours, colourers and the schools than what we are now.If you wish to be a part, you know where to shout.

The Sleeping Gypsy

The Sleeping Gypsy, Henri Rousseau

Notes: The Wikipedia link to Rousseau (above) carries this snippet: Rousseau's naive style gave him many critics: people often were shocked by his work or ridiculed it... Many observers commented that he painted like a child and did not know what he was doing, but the work shows sophistication in his particular technique. (Rousseau was a Post-Impressionist)
