Homage to De Kooning


I made my second visit to the Abstract Expressionists exhibition at London’s Royal Academy yesterday. My favourite room was the one devoted to Willem de Kooning. It set me wondering just how easy or hard it would be to paint in his style. Here is my first effort which took me all of thirty minutes but my support is a lot smaller than his. If I have succeeded the question arises of what it is about these artists that makes their works worth millions.
