Watercolor and Pastel Artists at CHAW
In the Wednesday Studio we all have enjoyed seeing how Linda Andreatta and Vince Iannacchione have created quite different versions of the same scene.
It started with this photo, taken by Linda in Death Valley:
Back in the studio, Linda used her photo to create this pastel work:
It goes without saying (but I’ll say it anyway), we were all blown away by Linda’s work.
Then, a year or so later, we noticed Vince working on something new. “Whatcha doing, Vince?” I asked. He said he was struck by the abstract perspective of Linda’s rendition of Death Valley, and her work inspired him to try and depict an other-worldly landscape in watercolor.
So, both of them thought of the scene as “other-worldly.”
Vince used only Linda’s pastel work as his source to create his own version—he never even saw the photo. He chose watercolor for his rendition of Zabrieski Point in Death Valley:
I really love both of their works. But what I love even more is thinking about how two artists approach a subject so differently.
