Lucian Freud with Orchid


While on holiday in Paris a few years ago, I was fortunate enough to tour the Centre Pompidou. 
Even more fortunate for me that it was during a major show of Lucian Freud's work.i left the L'Atelier exhibit with this poster and a burning desire to take a stab at replicating Freud's lush brushwork. Here's the first stab...


A pic from a cafe across from the Pompidou, which was under construction at the time.. and also under a terrorist threat..had to wait a few hours before re-entry was allowed. Just another day in Paris. And another reason to loll away a few hours in a Parisian cafe. :)
