Tough on Tom

My homage to Tom Thompson

This is my knock off of a Tom Thompson painting. Whew. You want a lesson on hard these folks worked on their paintings, try on one of your own.

Tom Thompson

This is my version of an iconic Tom Thompson painting.

I have to say though, I feel my hand is improving and I think, if you could see the high resolution version, I didn’t do too bad a job. Some really nice textures.

Hope you enjoy.

Perturbed Piet

A homage to Peit Mondrian

I found an early painting by Peit Mondrian, Gray tree. As it was storming outside, thunder boomers, heavy rain, I decided to spend an idyllic few hours doing an homage.

Apoplectic Varley

This is the first of a series of group of seven, er, influenced drawings I’ve started.

This drawing “Apoplectic Varley” subdues his bright and impassioned waters and skies. Have a look at the original. I might work on this more to bring up some of the vibration and contrast … Still. A most enjoyable many hours.

Apoplectic Varley subdues the vibrant waters and sky of the original. Perhaps too derivative?

Your thoughts are important to me. Comments appreciated.
Not to mention sponsoring my creative power with beer. Hint hint.
