In the Style Of Others
When I first began painting I spent a lot of time listening to others discuss which artist and artwork I should look up because my work was in their style. This is good and can also be a trap. I believe that we should take some time to develop our own style, but should not make art in a vacuum. It should not hurt any of us to look at as many art styles and art works as possible, and at times make works that are in their style. The next paintings were completed along with my students in the style of other artists works.
