This month, I will be working on Modigliany.
It's All About Mo Not "me", mo!
Want to play with me? Here's the plan:
*You will select 4 paintings of Modigliany. See some HERE It doesn't matter that 15 people do the same, and only one does another. Each person picks the four they like best.
*You will work each week in ONE painting, so you have 7 days to sketch, layer, paint, repaint... and finish.
*Based on his work, with your twist. Or if you want to go as close as you can, that's fine too.
*Post at the end of the week, which by now will be less than 7 days, but let's say every weekend. Easy piece lemon peasy.
Modigliani has beautiful complicated but simple backgrounds. Many of his portraits have long necks and show eyes with no definition of iris and ball.... so frustrating for an obsessive eye-person like me, but so mysterious!
No one is asking for perfection... just have fun and discover something new in you. Make it yours, the challenge is to enjoy it.
UPDATE It is perfectly fine to copy the masters as an exercise, to improve or technique or to practice. But It is not ok to copy any image to sell, that is infringement of copyright as we all know, but I wanted to take note here :o)
Come grab the challenge button if you want it, in the side of the blog. (Copy text, paste in a html/java gadget)
Let's see where our brushes take us!
