自從分享完第一幅油畫作品之後, 我想某些格友一定在期待著我第二幅的油畫 (蛤? 沒有! 喔... 好吧! 算我自作多情了 ). 老實說, 我也很想趕快畫完, 在第一時間跟大家分享作品. 不過, 繪畫班的假期從去年12月22號開始, 直到今年1月7號才結束. 但是, 我在5號那天開始感冒不舒服, 連續幾堂課都沒辦法去, 直到17號我才恢復上課... 所以才等到現在跟大家分享我的第二幅油畫! 希望你們沒有等得不耐煩了~ (阿就沒人在等, 我還在自言自語...嘖嘖! 寫部落格還真是容易令人自演自唱阿~ )
這幅畫也是個複製畫, 原畫家是保羅·希涅克, 原作名稱是粉紅色的雲.
我這人超愛點彩畫風! 所有的點彩畫作我也很愛, 所以我跟老師說我想畫畫看, 但老師有點猶豫. 因為點彩畫風不是老師的專長, 他還是會希望我先練習關於光線和陰影的作品, 而不是一下就跳出主題. 我跟老師說這只是個嘗試, 我畫完這幅後就一定恢復光與暗的練習... 老師看我那麼想嘗試也就隨著我了. 另外, 他隨後也說了, 畫畫本來就是要畫自己想畫的嘛!
老實說, 我畫到一半時, 內心浮現放棄的念頭, 因為要複製一幅點彩畫作簡直就是要人命啊! 我試著跟隨著原畫家的風格, 試著調出相同的顏色, 試著畫出同樣的筆觸, 試著把每種顏色的位置和比例都均勻呈現在畫布上... 不過, 還是沒辦法完全複製原畫家筆觸裡的美感! 我也感覺到老師放我自生自滅, 因為在課堂上他都不太花時間來看我的進度, 跟第一幅畫作來比, 次數很明顯的少很多!
當作品一完成, 雖然過程很辛苦, 但我還是很高興自己畫過這種畫風! 老師看得出我的疲累, 他問我: "雖然累, 但我有享受到畫點彩畫的樂趣嗎? 我喜歡嗎?" 我跟老師說我很高興有嘗試過了, 不過, 如果下次要再用點彩方式的話, 那應該比較適合在自我創作方面! 因為點彩風的畫作筆觸太隨性了, 想要把每個點都點在同個位置簡直是天方夜譚! 老師也同意, 說要畫得一模一樣是不可能的啦!
I know it has been more than a month since I last posted about my recent artwork. I just want to let you know that I am not working on any masterpiece at home, the truth is, I haven’t been painting or drawing since Christmas. Well, we went to his parents for Christmas, and we went to a ski resort for New Year. Few days after we came back from skiing, I caught a bad cold. I missed a few classes because I was too unfit to go (The holiday started from Dec. 22 to Jan 7, and I didn’t go to class until the 17th)!
Anyway, this is another copy piece I did from Paul Signac ‘The pink cloud’. The thing is, I love all the artworks with dots and points (mostly paintings and drawings)! I told the teacher that I wanted to try it, but he hesitated and asked if I had other subjects that I would like to paint. I said not really (I had spent more than one hour to find a subject again, and I'd had enough of it). He told me that pointillism isn’t his specialty. He would prefer that I keep practicing on subjects about light and shadow before I move on to do something else. I told him that I would continue with the light and shadow theme once I have tried to paint with points.
He understood my stubbornness, so he didn’t say much but agreed. He then said to me: "it’s important to paint what you would enjoy!"
To be honest, the idea of giving up appeared a few times while I was painting it. It was so freaking hard to try to find the right colors; to paint with the exact brushwork, and to blend all the color spots into the same scales and places as the original work. It’s just impossible to do so! One more thing, I noticed that the teacher rarely came to check on me. Well, it was certainly much less than the last time (for my first oil painting). I guess it really isn’t his style at all!
Once I finished this piece, I was glad that I did it, even though the process was tiring! The teacher could tell that I was exhausted.
“I know it’s tiring, but did you like it? Did you enjoy it?” He asked me.
“Yeah, I did. I am glad that I tried. However, I will use the same technique next time when I create my own piece instead of copying from other artist. The technique of pointillism is just too hard to cope.”
He and I both agreed that it’s impossible to reproduce the exact same piece!
I will share some of my own drawings with dots and points in the near future. Till then...
