Some Beautiful Béba Paintings

My personal painting goal: study as many pretty things as I can by observation and facsimileing to the best of my ability.











I really want her dress. And isn't that cat fun to look at?

those are so cute. and some of the friendliest-looking bees i've ever seen. can't wait to see you do a painting like this.

That cat is amazing! Especially the last panel where it's being stung by bees. Good stuff!

Jenny said...

Wow! How'd you ever find this? Those paintings are fantastic.

At first I thought you painted these, and I was going to tell you to stop improving so fast.

I love the poor kitty. Is that a pancake he gets on his head? Awww.

Gabriel said...

i had never heard of this Béba, thank you!

I like the cats, very much!
the name of my cat is
-Fritz "Ladilla" Lang Marshmallow Cat... but in the tranquillity of the home, only we called "Fritz".

Those bees are so damn cute I want them to sting me over and over. In my mouth.

Beautiful paintings, really cute and well designed. The last panel is particularly expressive. Do you know what's the name of the artist? I can't figure it out exactly from the signature. It's certainly not Béba, because that's the name of the girl (title "Béba et son Chaton" would mean "Béba and her cat").

I love the bees.

Your aims are noble.

I wanna paint cute too. I wish I had the patience for more careful copying amongst all the frenzied scribblement.

I love that cat! I noticed that he seemed to have gotten himself into some trouble. Please tell me he's okay by the end of the story. Please...

excellent illustrations! i especially love the cat's expression when Béba is patching up the wee feline. her face is long and there's a touch of that indignation you see in cats. great source of inspiration, thanks!
