Week 7 Part 1 Willem de Kooning

Willem de Kooning 1904-1997

Willem de Kooning Woman 1949

That ferocious woman he painted didn’t come from living with me. It began when he was three years old.

Find a photo of a face.
Cut out the mouth.
Around the mouth, draw a de Kooning style figure.  Be loose.  Be free.  Be ugly.  It’s therapeutic.
Tomorrow:  Erasing de Kooning.
