International Artist's Collaboration Challenge Video # 05 for September
The fifth challenge our artist's have agreed on is to "Paint a Still Life" given to us by Clive Powell from Wales, UK.
Clive didn't share any photos but gave us some minimal instruction to "paint a still life having at least 2 elements, one metal object, one glass or ceramic object and one living object such as fruit or other food stuff." So I was off on another research project to find suitable material to use for this painting. I priced some "objects" at a local antique shop and looked in some local craft stores for other suitable objects but decided I was going to spend a bunch of money to buy some of these things.
So I decided to do another "Frankenstein Painting" where I take objects from two or more photos and combine them into a new composition using some object from each photo. So I found some photos of still life paintings I have been collecting for several years from an artist named Qiang Huang (pronounced Chong Wong). He does some very impressionistic still life paintings in oils. Using three of his paintings as a guide I composed a new still life for me to create in watercolor. Here is the photo of my finished painting and the link to the video for you to watch me paint it, if you like.
This video will go live to the public on September 30, 2016, so you have a chance to see it before everyone else has a chance, because you subscribe to my Newsletter. I hope you like the painting and the video.
