Some explanation, I used Millais's painting as a found object, the Wacom tablet and it's pen did not allow me to make a 'copy' since it is not designed for that purpose, rather it gave me a template, I then employed a process used by many others, ie to let mistakes in the technical process create unintended consequences, just as mistakes in silk screening created some of Warhol's famous pictures, here a mistake in using a simple paintbrush app has created new ideas within the image.

I was also conscious of Van Gogh who copied Millais but transformed him by using his (Van Gogh's) characteristic impressionist style.

Interesting experiment, Ross. I'm wondering, now, how such an experiment would work using my ArtRage & mouse---and I might, eventually, give it a try.

All best!
Patricia

Edited to add:
P.S.
Of course, Van Gogh didn't copy Mallais. Instead, he was influenced by the work of Jean-François Millet: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copies_by_Vincent_van_Gogh

Hi Ross. I enjoy how you have created a sense of depth with only line and flat color. By connecting the 3 shapes in the background to the horizon line, trees start to read as a cityscape, making them even more distant. I find the off-center, off-kilter placement of the main image interesting too, as if the image was a falling leaf wafting over the page. Nice work.

thanks Sharon, I've done a few of these based on different artists, an Aussie artist Brett Whiteley used to often do a drawing where the drawing pad was in the drawing, hence although it was a mistake I left the outline of the tracing in the picture, it didn't occur to me it looked like a falling leaf, all a happy accident,
cheers
Ross
