Today’s Art (6th March 2014)

Well, I was feeling fairly uninspired when I made both of today’s paintings, although they turned out reasonably well.

"The Holiday Of St. Agnes" By C. A. Brown

“The Holiday Of St. Agnes” By C. A. Brown

The Holiday Of St. Agnes” is a parody of one of my favourite 19th century paintings – John Everett Millais’ “The Eve Of St. Agnes“.

"The Pineapple Field" By C. A. Brown

“The Pineapple Field” By C. A. Brown

The Pineapple Field” was a fairly random painting and it was originally going to be a 1990s-themed painting but it ended up turning into something that looks like it came from the 1970s.

Today’s Art (27th October 2013)

Since I wasn’t feeling particularly imaginative today, I decided to try to copy a couple of interesting old (and, most importantly, out of copyright) 19th century paintings I found on Wikipedia.

These paintings are “Melisande” by Marianne Stokes and (an old favourite of mine) “The Eve Of St. Agnes” by John Everett Millias.

Whilst my copy of “Melisande” turned out fairly well, my copy of “The Eve Of St. Agnes” didn’t really turn out anywhere near as well as I hoped it would. One of my major problems with these two drawings was that I didn’t really have the range of colours available that the original painters did.
