MAKE UP A PORTRAIT FROM A VIDEO STILL

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

Year: 2019

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.

This is the portrait artwork’s data sheet: 

Title: Crime Scene 7. Another Angel in the Crowd

Artist: Veronica Huacuja

Technique: Digital Painting

Year: 2020

Some previous thoughts. It’s very important to title our artwork with success. Why? The artwork’s title is a highly important resource that introduces the observer into its “creative circle”.  Sometimes, it's the pass-through to our work.

Educational objectives. As nowadays creators, our resources are multiple when it comes to display our work in the media, and we must use them on our behalf. One of these resources is the title of our work.

Material. Digital tablet (I use and recommend one with hand pressure sensitivity),  Photoshop and a still from a true crime video (the adolescent's image).

My experience making up the title of this artwork. I think the first part of the title doesn't need any further explanation, the topic of the artwork is clear. But when it comes to the subtitle–“Another Angel in the Crowd”–I need to say that I took the idea from one verse of a song of the English rock group, Dire Straits, “Wild West End”. Reality works like in slumbers, it overlaps. Doesn't it?

This time the work of the American photographer, John Coplans (1920-2003) amazed me. My artwork is base on his photo “Self Portrait: Torso With Large Upper Arm II", 1985.
