Draw It In Your Style Challenge
This month I have participated to a very inspiring painting challenge hosted on Instagram by Artist Annie Stegg Gerard
she challenged us posting her first 2019 oil painting “Princess Cordelia” for a “Draw It Your Style Challenge!” To enter we had to draw Cordelia in our own style being free to change anything we wanted. Annie’s painting is stunning just as it is all her Art. Ethereal, fantastic and dreamy. I was so enchanted by this beautiful painting it gave me feelings of peace, serenity and love for animals and nature very inspiring to me that of course I didn’t think twice I wanted to recreate it in my own signature style. I loved to paint her and I like the outcome.
Annie’s art world is….
” Inspired by nature, folklore and mythology, her work evokes emotion and imagination in the viewer. Annie has a special love for the 18h century Rococo painters who have had a large influence on her own method. She finds inspiration in their imagination, and the dreamlike palette and lively brushwork that combine to create a wonderful atmosphere of enchantment.” I suggest you to visit her website at Gallery Gerard
I hope that you like how I have recreated mine in watercolors and ink and please leave me comments let me know your impressions and feelings about it! I really would like to know!
I have to tell you that it was a bit intimidating at first, because Annie is an amazing Artist some of her clients just to name a few are in the movie and gaming industry Warner Bros, Disney, Dreamworks and more… but Annie has been so lovely and commented on my work in progress and again when I posted on Instagram the finished painting, she said that it is beautiful and that means so much to me. What do you think?
