Use video stills to make up a portrait
Hi! I am Veronica, a painter and an art coach at patreon.com/veronicahuacuja. I have some good tips for your painting process.
This is a true principle. As artists we must use all the resources we have in hand to produce our work. This is one of these cases where I made a portrait out of video stills (images) I captured from an online true documentary.
To exemplify this, I add the following work:
Title: The Interview 5
Artist: Veronica Huacuja
Media: Acrylic on paper
Size: 37.4 (W) x 26.7 H() x 0.1 in
Previous exploration. I base this work on various video stills I took from an online true documentary video where a doctor–a psychiatrist–performs a collective interview to three schizophrenic catatonic patients, which is a very serious mental illness.
Getting to know...
- That online research pays off when you find a “diamond” source, such as the cited video. This criteria from a creator’s point of view and with a profound respect for the persons implicated in the referred situation.
- Composition, which is the organization of the artwork's elements.
- Painting with a chiaroscuro technique in acrylics on a medium format paper.
