Gauguin inspiration


My colours are very much inspired by Gauguin, however I don't recall him ever painting a gibbon! I had a quick go at this today, the boys are on their Easter hols, so I don't expect to have too much time this week. I've also been busy with the final touches to the painting for my exhibition in May, silly stuff like attaching d-rings to canvases, framing pastel paintings and getting some new cards printed of my work. Back to the Gauguin inspiration, I went to a fantastic Gauguin exhibition this year at the Tate Modern. I was mesmerised by his colours, hope I can get just a hint of his genius.
