I chose to do Picasso’s painting “Skull and Leeks”. The original used a lot of yellows and reds, so mine relied a lot on purples and greens. I thought it was interesting how the whole feel of the painting changed based on the color scheme. The original felt weirdly festive, while mine seemed more macabre. It could also be because the colors were just darker in general. All in all, I’m really pleased with how it turned out. It’s been about 15 years or so since I picked up a paintbrush and this project took quite a bit of time for me, but I’m happy with the end result. I wish I could have emulated his brush strokes better, but they just looked sloppy when I did them.
