The topic this week is 'chair'.
We are busy packing boxes for moving so i didn't have a great deal of time to work on anything. However i decided that i woudl have ago at painting my daughter's computer chair in the style of van Gogh's famous chair drawings and paintngs.
Its vaguely based on the chair and pipe painting with a box of onions in the background.
Since I'm allergic to onions and don't smoke, I've used a mini vase of bamboo twigs and a cell phone which are much more me. I've also used the patterned floor tiles [probably c1930] from this house instead of the plain terracotta tiles from the original.
It was pretty difficult using someone elses's perspectives and drawing style and i don't think i have quite managed what i wanted to do - but at least i have managed to finish it.
I wish I had found this much better image of the chair with pipe before starting the painting as that would have helped with getting the paint strokes right rather than going from memory
