Week 37 – 20. Interpretation of Art


I took this photo a long time ago and although it is not good technically I liked it and have hung on to it. I was struggling to decide what to do this week and I remembered it. I am very found of Van Gogh’s work and this reminded me of his sunflowers. I used the same technique as the single colour on Black and White to paint in the present background and to cover the original background. It was a very painstaking exercise and my painting needs more practice but I enjoyed it. I would have liked to    have done a textured background but that is for another time.
