Dali's Burning Giraffe by students

Sherri’s work

  • from the Arts program to help “troubled youth” ; each painted a subject of their choice who inspired them through imagery or feeling….no tracing, all were done free-hand copying the application, color, brushstrokes, technique provided them with direct hands-on learning and more importantly on how to see – not just the surface but what was underneath and the “FEEL” of the whole.

    Sherri – This is fantastic!! The graduated colour of the sky – The imagery of the characters are so unbelievably stunning. You my dear have a wonderful talent.

    An amazing piece of work! Well done.

  • I think so too :)….she was wanting to quit but struggled on and she finished. No tracing, copying or reproduction of any kind – all done with her hand and eye. Just to get the colors right was a feat in itself.

    I also painted this 48 years ago when I was at school using a grid to scale it to 2ft x 3ft. I love it. It is my favourite painting of all time and was an influence in later life when I used wide angle lenses to get similar perspectives in photography. It now hangs in my son’s room along with his death metal posters! I must post my version on RB sometime.

    P.S. This is an excellent version in freehand work. The spirit of the painting is captured really well.
