Prompt 15: Who is your favorite artist? Some ideas for your response to this prompt can include: a photo of one of the artist’s paintings, select one element of their technique and use it in your pages (such as color), write about what attracts you to their work.
Claude Monet’s art technique was influenced by the art of Edouard Manet. Manet originally learned from the school of realism and naturalism of his fellow artists of the time period. Edouard Monet brought together the French impressionists: Auguste Renior, Alfred Sisley, Claude Monet and Camille Pissaro. These artists learned from each other in the same way we can also benefit from the knowledge of other creative people. Inspiration can come from members in our group, classic artists, well known mixed media artists, such as Dina Wakley, Seth Apter, Gwen Lafluer, Tim Holtz, Julie Balzer and Diane Revealey. We may not want to use every technique we see, but we can take some of those ideas and make them our own by the way we incorporate them into our artwork.
Looking forward to seeing everyone’s response to Prompt 15!
