Paula Rego, House of Stories. Portugal

Amazing gallery. Spent and intense and inspiring day here. Loved the room full of her beautiful, senstive and vibrant observational drawings.



Is it me or is there a spooky resemblence between this figure and Nick Cave?Nick Cave and Paula Rego in one go- made my day!



Copy of  Saint Dymphna. Difficult to retain fluid and amimated mark making, characteristc of Regos draughtsmanship, while retaining accuracy. Would like to have returned and copied a number of times until the movements felt more gestural and less controlled and contrived
