Studies from 'Beach Scene'; After Degas (1834-1917). Oil on paper, 2008 / 09

Beach Scene - after Degas, I & II
Oil on paper - 2008-09

Two Oil s on paper unearthed from studio clean out - painted them in 08/09;
based on a lovely Degas painting - 'Beach Scene' - which is
in the National Gallery in Dublin - one of the minor masterpieces
by the great French genius who only produced masterpieces, in oil and pastel.
I had planned to do an entire show of small works, drawings and oils
based on this one painting - maybe i still will!
