Art heist

Taking the online class with Krista Peel “Art Heist” reminds me of my early drawing career when I loved to copy master paintings. I will update the pictures of the class. But first I like to share my early heist…

The impulse to a series of “master copies” was the discussion around an oil painting which was called an art heist – the original is an aquarelle painting from Max Pechstein. I did some more figure drawings (no tracing) at the End of 2010.

At the in person drawing class in 2011 we did a mix-media piece of a painting.

In “The year of the giraffe” with Carla Sonheim we had End of 2013 the assignment to find a picture of a famous artist and re-interprete it into a giraffe-style. That was fun! I couldn’t get enough…
