Thread: Homage to Hoffman

  1. #1

    Homage to Hoffman

    Hello
    Yesterday I went to see the Raphael to Renoir drawings exhibition here in Edinburgh, which was marvellous. For me the star of the show was Hans Hoffman's wild boar piglet - a sublime little watercolour. I loved it so much I decided to pay tribute and put a piglet in my latest WIP
    Cheers

    And you´ve done the piglet proud! What a super painting (yours, that is). Love that teamwork working for the fruit.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Thanks everyone, much appreciated. Needless to say I am really enjoying painting this series.
    Coops, it may be cute now, but things are about to get a whole lot uglier - gulp!
    Thanks
