Alberto Giacometti

 I enjoy Giacometti's paintings and drawings
perhaps even more than his sculptures.
 Loose, energetic lines. Limited colour.
 Layers building to reveal form.  
Area of focus becoming clear, peripheral left incomplete.
This image always reminded me of my Dad. Tall and lean, pointed knees and long legs.
Happy Fathers Day!
