I then took the next step, which is to incorporate Georgia's style into a work of my own. I started with this photograph:
And tried to paint it in the style of Georgia O'Keeffe. This is what I came up with:
I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I learned that O'Keeffe, while representational, is not strictly realistic. I'm not sure I got as much energy and emotion in my flower as she does in hers, but I liked how I captured different shades of color in the flower.
I'd still like to copy a few of her paintings using pastels or acrylics, but that will have to wait until after I finish setting up my creative space. And I definitely want to do some Chagall pastels as well. Got any favorites in my creations today
