Green Eyed Over...

I came across Egon Schiele a few years ago and he has been, and still is, one of my favourite artists.
As I have said in previous posts, I adore Tina Berning's work, and I came about this piece the other day and it immediately reminded me of Schiele's work.
Maybe she is inspired by him?
There is evidence on both how the lines are so similar- thin, flowing and both in black which gives it a harsh but yet gentle outcome.
Berning has used more colour on hers than the original of Schiele's, but both are very limited to colour.
I would love for my work/ drawings to be as good as these, and that is why I am 'green' with envy!
