Femme Becomes Homme

I have a couple of books of works of art owned by the Tate Gallery. I love looking through them from time to time, and came across this Picasso painting the other day. I think it is so beautiful and wanted to have a go at a copy using techniques from the portrait class. This is how it turned out! As I said in the title, femme became homme!

She looks slightly elfin with that large ear and pointy features.
The transformation begins!
Though I think he/she is wavering here a little.

It is really androgynous, isn't it? We saw a Picasso exhibit a few years ago in Ottawa. It was incredible!

Have you seen the film, "Surviving Picasso" with Anthony Hopkins?

How interesting, what a change to her. I am in awe at your skill.
I'm not sure that it's your site, I think it's my computer that is the problem with scrolling down. I wasn't able to play the videos on your previous post.
