I watched a really good movie last night on Netflix. It's not often you get a well-done, realistic movie about artists, written by an actual artist. I loved it, I loved the dialogue about art, I even learned things from Nicoli.
Here's the "official" description taken from the Netflix site: "A struggling 18-year-old art student meets a well-known painter many years his senior whose life has been consumed by alcoholism, and the two forge a friendship that helps both of them to overcome their pain and look toward their dreams. The young man really wants to learn to approach his painting like the master, and the old master wants just as much to be able to revisit the world through the rose-colored lenses of youth."
I watched it on my computer, here in my studio and worked at the poppy grisaille at the same time. Talk about multi-tasking! It's coming along though - almost looks like a black and white painting! I'll post it later .....
I keep looking at the title of this post and want so badly to put the "u" in the word, Color! I have a book by Jeanne Dobie called "Making Color Sing" and I actually took a black marker and put the "u" in the title on the cover. ROTFLOL! Spelling habits never die!
