Given the disruptive take on form and perspective that cubism emphasises you might think that there's little it can offer the miniature painter. George Braque has always dwelled in the shadow of his peer Pablo Picasso, but I've always found him equally (and sometimes more) engaging. What I'm taking from Braque's work at the moment is the balance of his palette in pieces such as those included below. These tones are almost organic and I'm intrigued by the way that they build from an near sepia base. Both these aspects are key to the sketch approach that I'm developing throughout this month.
