Paintings that inspire mosaic making
This post is about the possible sources of inspiration as well as the basis of work for a mosaic from paintings or photographs. A good design, a drawing, painting or photograph can be translated into mosaic or act as a start for exploration. Not an easy task. I have always made simple drawings for mosaics or copied ancient ones, depending on the project. Today I want to feature 3 artists whose work fascinates me in a particular way as I think they provide a valuable foundation for mosaic work.
The blogs are in order of appearance:
Vasiliki of free paint (peacock)
Catherine Nolin of Catherine Nolin blog (partridge on an orange bench)
Elisabeth of Colorfic (meet the beettles)
