One hundred and ten years after Paul Gauguin was painting in Polynesia I copied some of his paintings. Making some notations in my moleskine sketchbook,
I was blown away by the way Gauguin used color, the way he drew space using shapes and line. I sketched very quickly and noted the color of his simple shapes with the idea of going back home and painting a little rendition of a Gauguin.
