This week I asked artists to divulge exactly how they created their art—whether they looked at real-life objects and scenes, used reference photographs, or just used their own imagination.
I even threw in the option of “other artwork” in case there were any dedicated art forgers out there (there aren’t that many, apparently).
Quick announcement - EmptyEasel is creating a better, simpler way for artists to have their own art website. We're launching it this month to a limited group of artists. Click here to email us and grab your spot!
As I write this, the “reference photographers” are in the lead, but there’s still plenty of time for all you plein air painters and abstract expressionists to chime in and make things interesting.
