Last week I taught a drawing/printmaking class. Towards the end of the week I decided to do a little painting project with the group (one we did when I was a student). I printed out a part of Caravaggio's painting of Saint Jerome, cut it into little pieces and each student got three or four pieces they had to scale up and paint. They did not know what the whole image looked like, and had no idea what they were painting.
So it was all about negative space, shapes and color, subjects we'd covered earlier in the week. In the end we put the pieces together and this is the result of the exercise.
A painting by 6 diffrent people who had no idea what they were painting.
I think the parts where the lines don't meet and the image is slightly "off" is what makes it interesting. @bodofrukt .
