This one was an unexpected challenge but turned into one of my favorites!
You must go to Nichole’s blog and watch the video ‘Make Good Art’, it is outstanding! I even shared it on my Facebook page! Very powerful!! The challenge (in her words):
‘Each of the team members has selected a particular artist that speaks to them creatively and used them as inspiration for their own work of art. Take a look at their selections below and how they adapted the style, colors, composition and more, into an amazing card.’
Of course, I picked Claude Monet….
(Claude Monet-The Cliff Walk at Pourville)
Painted 1882 currently resides at the Art Institute of Chicago.
Several of my family members have moved out of state and it has been a difficult adjustment for all of us so when I saw this painting…I instantly thought about the family and how much I missed them.
While his was done with oils, I had watercolors in front of me…so that’s what I used. I did use acrylic paint for all the white areas.
