29 Faces (Day 27) - Modigliani-ish

 Used watercolors and colored pencils for a simple homage to Modigliani and his lovely long-necked ladies.  Back in May I painted "Mildred" in acrylic paints and decided it was time to revisit my inner Modigliani.  Do you like her quote?
"She would have loved to go around and slap every one of them in their silly, happy faces."
 When I am bored and not feeling particularly creative then I go through some of my vintage books looking for quirky quotes to cut out.  I have a whole bag of them to go through when I want to embellish a picture.
Check out all the fabulous faces this month at Ayala Art!

Lol! love that quote! Sometimes I feel like that too! Do you just take phrases from a book? Your Modigliani-girl is gorgeous!

The girl is wonderful (tho I am not sure how you would say Modigliani-ish! It's a fun quote as well.

I think this is my favorite so far! Love the quote too - perfect for her expression.

she is rather smug, isn't she?!
Perfect quote.

I love her expression and long neck. This is a great painting, love the quote too, what a good idea to collect them like you do:)

This quote had me laughing. I'm going to try your idea of cutting things from old books. This face is very intriguing...she has a mysterious expression.

I am a huge Modigliani fan and I could have recognized the style even without the title. Excellent work
