Maryte Collard – Artist style #6
My choice of the artist was Russian painter Arkhip Kuindzhi (1841- 1910), whose style was realism. I am not copying his works but only following his style, that had a focus on light effects. In all his paintings light plays a very important role.
For the artist #6 I was inspired by the photo of winter scene taken by my nephew Saulius Smirinenko. In his photo I could not understand what was the source of the light. It comes from behind the dark trees and makes the scene magic and bright.
It was very challenging to make decisions on how to reflect on the light that fills this photo. I used my own hand dyed and some commercial fabrics. All pieces are fused using Wonder Under. Machine quilted and hand stitched.
Now I want to go back and see how my entire series of Artist style looks like:
