“To find an alternative approach, I paint with my mind’s eye, imagining that my painting is a circus and I am the ring leader whose job is to transform the pandemonium of my mind and coordinate artistic visions of the world I witness.” – Elise Meredith Beattie

“To find an alternative approach, I selected subjects that were perhaps more moody than my usual ones and likewise ventured into darker and more muted color than I had been accustomed to.”
– Ted Nuttall

“To find an alternative approach, I searched for a story, finding inspiration in the fairy tale world of childhood, where anything magical could happen.”
– Sandrine Pelissier

Check Out This Excerpt from Splash 13:

A friend of mind has been taking flamenco lessons, and as she was showing me one of her new moves, it was as if she turned into a fifteenth-century gypsy. I knew I had to paint her. In a large warehouse space, we did a photo shoot complete with live flamenco music while I took hundreds of photos over a period of a couple of hours. I wanted to place the figure in a large space, but keep detail on the figure, so I decided to work large. I stretched the watercolor paper from a roll onto stretcher bars. The underlying drawing took about a week. Then I started detailing the face and hands using a small brush. The background is layers of dark washes done with larger brushes. The painting took about a month to finish, and was the first in a series of flamenco dancing paintings. – Suzy Schultz
