Good morning everyone. It is frosty and very cold here at the moment but the sun is shining so I am sure it will soon warm up. Hope it is nice where you are and thank you calling in.
At the wonderful Art Journal Journey this month we are asked to be Inspired by the Masters. I am fairly sure that the artist who inspired me to do this painting would not be impressed by my work but he did inspire me to do it.
I chose the artist Auguste Herbin. When I was doing art at school we often went to galleries to see exhibitions of 'modern art'. I used to think it would be great to be an artist and that this style would be so easy to paint. I never tried it until now and I realise it is not easy at all. I was only 13 when I had to choose between Art and Science and I chose science--that is my excuse for not being able to paint very well. :(
Here is a close up. It is painted in emulsion paints--I got 10 new tester pots for £8 from Wilkos
Here is a digital version which seems to be a better medium for me and I could create the bright colours that the artist used in his paintings. This took ages to do though with all the shapes and the colours.
Wonder which artist will pop into my head next and inspire me?
Have a great day everyone
Love Chrissie x
