Having read the chapter on Cézanne, and honestly not really absorbed a lot of the material, I decided to take a slightly left-field approach to studying art.
I went to Hobbycraft, bought some cheap acrylic paints in those cool little tubes, a palette and a couple of brushes. I decided the only way I was going to appreciate art, was to have a go myself and 'experience' it.
(A bit of background - my last job and one of my hobbies is painting little toy soldiers. Applying colours to a miniature and trying to create a picture from a blank canvas (or piece of A4) are two totally different things)
In keeping with the slightly odd idea, I decided to make the subject of my picture none other than the greatest - Danger Mouse himself.
It's definitely harder than it looks!
