DAILY DIAPER #228 "The Pipe Smoker"

To bid on this painting click the diaper below.
Another piece for the DPW challenge of doing a painting in the style of an artist you admire. I must admit this is a study from a painting that I did by an artists whose name, unfortunately, escapes me! The work was in the Orientalist tradition and might of been a Gerome or a Bonnard, both French painters of this tradition whom I admire greatly. I took a small swatch of the piece, this grizzled old man, and focused in on him for the study. This piece is also a bit larger than I normally put on DPW at 8x8".
