Ok great, thanks Sid. One thing though, I read the term 'primitive' is now disregarded as it's 'pejorative' and uncomplimentary. Do you have another similar term you could use? Also any other comments on the above piece of "art"? will read your hub n
Hi Joe - I agree about the term "primitive," some use "naive," but it can have the same problem (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Na%C3%AFve_art). Your image. I like the directness, energy, & simple, flat color. The man's mood is conveyed instantly.
Many thanks Sid.
I'm glad I could help. I'd appreciate a "best answer" vote.
