WDE Painting- Fauve style

Here is my one hour painting, inspired from one of deepat's photographs of this weekend's Weekly Drawing Event.

Here is the original photograph, from the WDE, hosted by deepat this past weekend

If you read my previous two posts, you can learn more about Wetcanvas and their WDE or Weekly Drawing Event that is hosted each weekend by one of its members.

In my last post, I talked a bit about the Fauves and their wild color palette and bold way of painting, and I encouraged you to walk in the footsteps of the Fauves to day and try out a Fauve-inspired style that you can incorporate into your own work.

Below, are a few of my steps along the way- my art table set up, with the original reference photo above my watercolor paper, and two Fauve painting copies on either side- one by Braques and one by Vlaminck (The Circus- shown in post just befor this one).

I also snapped a picture of my palette set-up, my gesture underpainting, and the painting at the 30 minute point.

I'd love to see your work, if you attempted this (or any previous work inspired by the daily posts here). Just fill out the contact form on the right, and I'll get right back to you!
