If you're following my Apartment Therapy Style Cure project, you already know that I'm attempting to add colour to our hallway through artwork. I love geology and I painted the geode (right) to practice my shading and use of colour. My little painting was beginning to grow on me when I realized that I may be a bit of a copycat!
Note, the picture shows them propped against my living room mantle, hence the blue swatches. They will actually be against a warm grey wall in the hallway.
The Jealous Curator (a fabulous art blogger) wrote a great post about artist, Cecelia Phillips. Can you guess what Ms. Phillips paints? That's right... minerals and geodes! I probably read the post ages ago and forgot about it, so this post also serves as a confession: My name is Taylor de Sa and I am an art copycat!
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. As it happens, Ms. Phillips paints beautifully and I found myself inspired to imitate her again. (left painting in top photo)
Obviously, they're nothing like the real thing. Here's a selection of Cecilia Phillips' work as compiled by The Jealous Curator:
I just love a few of these! Mine will have to suffice for now, though. Just to check back, here's a quick look at the colour palette I hope to achieve:
And here are some of my completed paintings to date:
I still need a pop of pink, but it's coming along nicely! What do you think?
