Michelle paints Danny…Euan Uglow like

Michelle likes a challenge. This time, after the fine painting in the style of Klimt, she has painted her son Danny in the style of Euan Uglow. Uglow paints very methodically, slowly and with precision points mapping out the planes of surfaces. Whether those planes are the surfaces of the face, the nude or a toothbrush as still life, he didn’t change the technique from one subject to another.

Michelle has painted a wonderful portrait and has forced an unfamiliar, systematic approach against her natural inclination to blend and smooth out the tonal edges. It also was hard for her to use deeper tones than usual.

Great job!

  2. It’s particularly appealing to see this and the Klimt-like one both in a short span of time (maybe there’s even a way to post so that they can be seen side by side?), since they represent such widely divergent styles and techniques and uses of color and-and-and . . . . Kudos to the obviously wildly skilled Michelle for being able to tackle such diversity so successfully!

    • I will try to post together soon. Michelle is indeed talented, and open to ideas, such was her easy willingness to look at these two painters and say “why not”.Thanks for commenting, Kathryn.
