2019 Challenge

This year I have

challenged myself to 

paint 1 painting

per week in the 

style of one of the 

historical Top 100

artists.  I am trying to 

use the techniques, medium and colours that they used but the goal is to refrain from copying them.  The time restriction of 1 week puts limitations on the oil painting and those artists who produced very detailed works

1 week - 1 artist

Quiet Beauty

Acrylic on Canvas

Week 14 - Willem de Kooning(1904-1997)

"I'd like to get all the colours in the world onto one painting."

"What do you do when you paint, you take a brush full of paint, get paint on the picture, and have faith."

"I make pictures and someone comes in and calls it art."

Christmas in

the Park

Week 16 - Michelangelo (1475 - 1564)

"There is no greater harm than that of time wasted."

"Many believe - and I believe - that I have been designated for this work by God...I work out of love for God and put all my hope in Him."

The Boy

No Week 5

No quotes


Week 15 - Paul Klee (1879 - 1940)

"A line is a dot that went for a walk."

"One eye sees, the other feels." 

"Art does not reproduce the visible, rather, it makes visible."

Washing Day

Week 17 - Giorgione (1478-1510)
