A Pretty Face


Another week of the Postcard Challenge.  I have to tell you that I enjoyed painting this so much. I ventured out a little to a different technique from my usual and that was the fun part. I felt like a real artist.

This weeks reference is Fritz Kamptz (1866-1938).  He only spent a short while on the Isle of Man (week 27 prompt) during WW I when he interned as an "enemy alien". He returned to Germany after the war.

I may not retain all of the knowledge that I am gleaning with this project but I am enjoying every bit of it.
