#illo52weeks – Week 10: Night

We are often encouraged to create art in the style of a particular artist. I did this at college. I know that children do this in school with artists such as Van Gogh, Matisse or Miro. It is a good way to learn.

I love Chris Haughton’s illustration for Shh! We have A Plan. I tried to create an illustration in the style of his work but I do not have access to digital art software at the moment. So I tried to get hold of coloured acetate sheets. No luck. The nearest I got was celophane paper.

I didn’t quite create what I had in mind but I do like the overlapping effect of see-through materials. I will try again some other time.

This week’s theme is GREEN. I wonder what I will come up with?
