 Five and Ten Jambalaya by Jujika  Five and Ten Jambalaya by Jujika
Five and Ten squares, an artistic Jambalaya of color schemes and techniques, styles and diversity. When I paint something I sketch, I often wonder how different this picture would be if another artist painted the same thing. I believe, with the exact same sketch, a different painter with their own style can convey a totally different picture. Perhaps that is why the woman's body can be such a huge subject of study for artists and still be a fresh new look with every portrayal. Simply a change in style or perception with every artist.
Among my collage of tiles, I have tried to replicate the feel of various artists I greatly admire, and some styles I often refer to. Perhaps you can tell which tiles go to which artist:

Bougeureau
Tamara De Lempicka
Alphonse Mucha
Maxfield Parrish
Albert Bierstadt
John William Waterhouse

and of course lets not forget the tiles that represent groups of artists: namely oil painters, pencil sketchers, Pastel users, and the ever-present ever-popular ever-so-wonderful Digital Artist!! When put together they are obviously inconsistent....and yet....that similar endeavor for beauty somehow makes it fit.

About 6-8 hours, used Photoshop cs and Painter 8.
thank you for viewing

It`s so much interesting the way you construct the figure, showing not only different fragments of diferent styles, or tributes, every square shows me a different atmosphere of light, or maybe of different weathers too. And of different kind of feelings. I really get surprised because you chosed some "rare" artists i like very much and i can see their influence in the work, i mean of waterhouse, Parrish and the great Mucha. You seem to be so sensitive with light and shadow and i like the way you let us know it. the painting talks for itself, i want to see the results in the future when you progress in your technique (and i would like to see some traditional painting work, i mean traditional mediums).
well...: first square: Bouguereau, second: Lempicka, fifth tile: Mucha, i get confused about the others but... let`s see...: 12: Parrish, 14th waterhouse. 15th: Jujika.
I hope to coment soon.
saludos, Fabricio

Very nice comment/description. Each square is unique to each artist. This is really well done and brilliant work of art.
