The Distraction Lab blog has an interesting entry today about painting three different versions of a chosen photo. This is an excellent idea/challenge; you could do as they did, using matching, complementary, and then triad colors, or you could just try different styles of painting, such as abstract, pointillist, etc., or using different media even.
I know it’s always interesting to see how different artists interpret the same image, but it’s also fascinating to see how the same artist, over time or with different criteria, interprets that inspiration image. I may try this exercise myself later today if I can get some canvas boards gessoed in time (and focus enough to choose that inspiration image…).
