When I approach this project, I do some research on the artist, google their art and quotes, info about their life and times. This time I watched a movie about Gauguin and a video on how to paint like him. I checked out library books on his art and life. It was a challenge to relate to his colors and content. Being drawn to the female figure, I finally got excited about the project when I sketched out the woman holding a poodle instead of a platter.
I'm glad to see the back of this project, but love the finished piece so once again, it's good to stretch yourself.
What are you doing to stretch yourself in art? I'd love to hear from you!
