Solids Challenge - the muscular colors

I am participating in a solids challenge and have been having a hard time finding a painting, photo or picture for inspiration.  We need to use something for basis of our challenge piece.  I have been looking at Klimt, Degas, Renoir, Klee, Cezanne to name a few.  I liked the houses of Cezanne, but I could not find the series I loved so much two years ago.  So I kept looking

But this beauty was sitting on my table for a week or so.  I can see a lot of potential here. 

I think I can handle four of him! LOL.

With a little manipulation I think he will work.  Now to pull my suntan browns, warm sweet browns, and other muscular colors.


  1. Hmm, there might be some DiNozzo colors in there. You could use him to color match your fabric.

  2. Hmmmm...yes....I think I can see what interested you in this picture! Poor Frank!

  3. You know how to make a person check out your posts! When I saw that picture on my sidebar I thought 'What on earth?????' so of course I had to go see. lol Yes, he is definitely, um, solid.

  4. OMG this is so clever and funny!!! wow! now that's what I call a work out!


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
