Re: DIFFERENT STROKES: Our forum challenge for January

Sheila, Christel, Ron, Maureen (hope all is well), Colin, Talisman, Merri, Michelle, and Cindy thank you all so much for the comments on my Munchist entry.

ColinS, I love that last one! Great style and I will look into that artist. It has a very Edward Hopper American Post Impressionist feel to it too. I really like that the starkness and rich creation of forms. Very nice.

Re: DIFFERENT STROKES: Our forum challenge for January

Well it still January here for 30 more minutes so I also have another last minute entry. I bought a sample set of Charvin paints today in what they call their impressionist set. So I used it to paint an impressionist work. It's not completely done, but close enough. It may lean a bit more towards post impressionism a little Cezanne-esqe. It's painted on stretched canvas, 14x11 I think (it's out in my studio and I don't want to go out and measure it).
Impression Snowy Creek.

Re: DIFFERENT STROKES: Our forum challenge for January

David--another great entry! Love the use of colour which still conveys the cold of winter. Well achieved.

Re: DIFFERENT STROKES: Our forum challenge for January

Dorrat, well done you..

Great use of the lighter blue and yellow amongst the primaries. Has good depth and really is lovely. ( Loving your use of lots of colour )


I came back by chance this arvo to check out names of the artists that were mentioned this time in this challenge.. and in that searching, I found this chap.

You might perhaps like to have a squiz.

I think it is pastel, but I don't think it would be hard to do in ac.

Well done, its been beaut finding different artists and styles.
Really like the chap that ColinS mentioned, Lawren Harris.

Thanks and cheers

Merri

Re: DIFFERENT STROKES: Our forum challenge for January

ColinS, Thanks for your comments. What a fun challenge this has been! Great work and learning of different artists and movements. I really like the work of Lawren Harris. Great stuff, yours really does capture the feel of his red house series. Thanks again!

Merriweather, I like the work of the artist you posted. Very nice work. I agree it would be fun to do another 'ism' challenge; this has been fun and educational for me.

Charlie's Mum, Thanks so much for your comment on mine. And thank you for hosting such a fun and challenging challenge. I would like to host at some time, but I am not sure I know what is involved. Thanks again.

Re: DIFFERENT STROKES: Our forum challenge for January

David, it's pretty easy and the 'rules' are at the beginning of the DS Histing Scedule thread ... it's a sticky, near the top of the forum page. ..... and for this January one, all I needed was the subject, Winter, and the idea of using another's style ...... it could even be narrowed further to a particular artist .... like Van Gogh.
I know Jim, Old Hobbyist, likes to "paint In The Style Of" themes ...... he too has been missing, do hope he's OK.

Re: DIFFERENT STROKES: Our forum challenge for January

just saying, do you see what his mum did there... Lawren S

(Harris). I pondered for ages, then I realised instead of Lawrence she had modified to put a S for middle name. or so I am guessing...

I like riddles...

Of course, I could be right off track. !!

cheers
Merri
