    Newspaper photo paint

    Alberto Magnelli, great Italian modernist painter (1888-1971). His art is in exhibition in a Cultural Center, nearby where I live. I picked up the Sunday newspaper, with the release of his art. Put the newspaper here on the side of my screen and painted one of the released pictures, representing one of his paintings. I'm calling it as newspaper photo paint. A great exercise to visual choosing the colors and mixing. It seems incomplete but I preferred to leave it alone as it is.

    Love this study Oriane. The colours you've selected really put the 'life' into this still life

    Hi Oriane,

    Good idea to work inspired by a painting that you like,
    newspaper or whatever it is,
    your image is very fresh and personal.

    I am sorry that I didn't find many paintings done by Antonio Magnelli,
    this is one of two that I did find


    is this the Antonio Magnelli who inspired you ?

    Any way, you did a good painting .

    Thanks for the link,
    I made a mistake too because the image
    that I posted is also by Alberto Magnelli

    Dear Oriane, also not having the newspaper aside, I really appreciate this painting You did under such an inspiration. Anyway I found these images about Antonio Magnelli. On the seventh page You would find also Annie Okay's horses ...
    Your extremely refined sensitivity for colors is quite evident on these objects!
