Monet and Caricatures

It's been at least a week since I've done any Monet updates for you. I'm still reading and researching. But as a quick diversion, I thought that I'd dip into caricatures. Remember, Monet began his artistic career with caricatures. In fact, it was because he was so good at them that a professional painter approached him and told him he ought to learn to paint.

So with that in mind, I picked up a book on caricatures at the local library this week. I've had a few quick glances through it - don't think I'm brutal enough to really do well at this sort of thing.

But, in the spirit of challenges, I just thought it would be fun to try a few caricatures - these are my three monkeys (as I like to call them).

More on what I plan to do with Monet tomorrow.
