September's Inspiration - Fernando Botero

I came across this painting and he made me giggle. No idea why because he looks so serious in the painting. However, aren't the colours gorgeous? It'll be interesting to see what inspires and jumps out at me when I get to the dye pots in the next couple of days. Stay tuned and welcome to all the new clubbers for this month! This piece is entitled Portrait of Velazquez.

It reminded me of all those sport prints that were so popular. The big fat guys. It's a funny painting but the colors are rich.

The colours are rich and the artist is known for this style of painting - it's interesting to look through his work.
