Cheri HomaeeBiography: Artist Statement: This is my year long journey from photography to painting, from photographer to artist. I am interested in Realism. Realism is seeing things as they actually exist, the photographer or artist should not add anything to the object that is the subject of the work. A realistic picture dipicts only what exist. With my daily painting blog (LeArtStudio.com) I am attempting to give myself enough experience to create paintings that can pass as photographs. I am concentrating only on the technical aspects of my works. I will work from Photos of the objects applying aGrisaille, pronounced gri- zai. (It comes from the French word gris meaning grey.) The underpainting of grisaille is exactly that, a monochromatic painting done with shades of grey. Greys from the warm end of the color spectrum are used to build the values of this underpainting. When I have finished that, I apply layers of colors to give it depth. Country: USA Birthyear: January 22, 1951 Media: acrylic, Photography Style: realistic Subjects: still life, People
