Carriellen Angell – Fine artist.Posted by Sand on Jul 29, 2012 in Artist Interviews, Uncategorized | 0 comments
Now over to Carriellen;
I wasn’t inspired with anything in particular for this piece, other than having done another painting recently with a similar theme and not feeling quite done with it. I generally paint from the imagination so usually my paintings are pretty spontaneous and inspired by my mood at the moment, more than anything else. I was going for a sort of cool evening feel in this one, probably because this oppressive heat has got me frustrated beyond belief!
When my inspiration and painting ideas are at a low ebb I take to the Internet. I love to look at what other artists are up to, I look at art collections in museum sites, I look at classical works and modern works, I read about art theory and look at instructional videos, and I look at a lot of nature sites like sea creatures, astronomy pictures and microscopic images. Usually doing that for a while gives me some painting ideas to explore.
Thanks for the opportunity to participate!
