Still Life Impressionistic Painting


Recommended Posts


I love to see how far I go with creating a painterly look beginning with a photo. The original photo (below) is actually a montage of many images found on the web - vases, flowers, draperies, figurines, etc. were are separate images. The resulting combined painting was created solely from Affinity Photo's default filters & layer blend modes, and without using any brushwork. Ultimately, the document contained 22 layers.

When I read the first part of the text that you had written I decided to have a good look at your result before reading the rest and looking at the original picture, so as to avoid my reaction being influenced by the original.

I got the impression of a long dining table going perspectively into the distance with people sat each side at a dinner.

Perhaps a bit like the layout in the film Citizen Kane a bit after 40 minutes 30 seconds into the movie, yet the people mixed company in France around 1890, including at the left a lady wearing a large pink hat.
