My Own Challenge
As I fall asleep, I often have “visions” or ideas. The visions are usually art works to be produced. The ideas are on a variety of subjects. Recently I thought to myself that I should challenge my self to reproduce works of art by the masters or renowned artists in watercolor. This isn’t an unusual practice, copying from the greats. Many artists do so in the course of their education. I’ve never actually done it though. One reason to do this is to give myself a purpose for a bit (these challenges often help me to post more often on my blog and other websites). The main objective of this challenge is to stretch myself and to discover how far I may be able push the limits of watercolor. I will mostly be copying oil paintings and acrylics. Full disclosure: as an avid watercolorist, I have frequently felt that some subjects are more easily depicted in other mediums.
