Feminine from a masculine viewpoint

Hi Everybody!

Hope your day is going well. I have been having problems with my internet today. It is back on now, but slower than usual, so hope things will  soon be back to normal. I know these things are sometimes unavoidable, but it is still annoying.

Today I tried to copy a painting from Toulouse Lautrec, who painted many pictures of women, and whose name is connected with the Moulin Rouge and the Montmartre, where he often portrayed the night life of Paris.  It is called 'Le Corset Rouge',  from 1896. The background was made with brushos and sprayed and dripped colours, and I drew the figure with charcoal and pastel chalks.
I am linking to Art Journal Journey, Masculine and feminine.







Today started off with a cloudy sunrise.


I noticed these mushrooms growing in a hollow tree-stump


Somebody has painted the masculine sign on one of the trees:


Mill Lane:


Roof tops and spires





Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  7. Ein feines Bild, liebe Valerie! Und ich denke, nicht nur Männeraugen finden dies reizvoll. Mich spricht es auch sehr an. Natürlich ist es eindeutig. Warum auch nicht. Eine so schöne Arbeit, die Raum für Gedankenspiele läßt.

    Viele liebe Grüße zu Dir!

  11. Gosh, I was quite surprised when I opened my email this morning and managed to change screen before Wee Man looked across, haha. Your painting is beautiful indeed and the roof and steeple photos are fabulous. Happy Sunny Thursday to you {{Hugs}}

  12. Love your page today. I'm not familiar with this painting at all, but you definitely caught his feel. Sometimes I think it would be fun to take a trip back in time and check out some of these painted places/people, but only if we could stay for just a little bit. I don't know if any of these past times would be places to stay as they must be so different in many ways from what wee are familiar with now. Glad we have these paintings and also these old buildings (like in your gorgeous photos) to give us these glimpses back though. Hope you have a great day.

  15. Hi Valerie, Beautiful art work on Le Corset Rouge. You did an amazing job capturing the style from the artist. Love the buildings from your walk. Hope your internet behaves.
    Hugs, CM

  16. Good depiction and I really like the quote. Much art defies description and trying to explain it sometimes takes something away from it. I really must get myself some Brushos sometime. It is on my wish list.
    Thanks for another lovely pictorial stroll with you, my friend.

    Hugs
    Teresa

  20. Can imagine the pain being laced into those corsets, but have to say it is a fantastic slim figure she has, not a bit of spare flesh to be seen. Fabulous art and super photos.
