Reinterpreting a Photo

2nd April, 2020
By RS Weinblatt

Hey guys! I hope everyone is staying safe and using this time to get into their studios (or wherever you paint) and really use the time you have to go on that journey and give yourself permission to fly! What I’d like to touch on is the use of photos in our work as a tool, not so much an end result! I like to use photos in my process to give me a start on my journey, not be my destination.

For me, a photo is a series of suggestions that I’m free to interpret and then put my own spin on. I will change the palette, the season, the time of day and maybe even the light! I want to show you some examples of how I take a photo and manipulate it to suit my need to turn it into a painting.

Hiking for Inspiration

Inspiration is an exciting phenomenon because we never know when it will strike us. We can’t force it, we can’t just wait for it, but we can go many ways to stumble over it.

Dust on the paper, not the shelf

I guess there’s truth in the saying that doing art and buying art supplies are two kinds of hobbies (or passions). You can’t have one without the other, but also one can get carried away a little bit too much.
