Art Inspiration: Jack Vettriano

November 15, 2009 at 11:19 pm Leave a comment

I tell any and everyone I can about this artist, because I think he’s THAT amazing, so I thought it was time to showcase him on this blog.

 If I were to describe Vettriano’s work in one word: sexy. Not just simply the content of the work, but the way they were painted: the strokes, the color, the atmosphere.

Just looking at Vettriano’s paintings make me want to write, and I’m hoping that they’ll inspire you as well. Here are a few paintings so that you can see what he’s all about. If you want to view larger images and many more of them or learn more about Vettriano, please visit his website! The link is at the bottom of this post.

So how can you use this for inspiration? Pick a painting and just write. Write a page about what’s going on in the picture, or write about who’s taking the picture. Why are they taking they picture? What happened write before this moment was captured? What’s going to happen next? 

If you’re not a writer, think about the same questions, and answer them in the form of your choice. For example, if you’re a photographer, find a model and take pictures of what’s going to happen next. The sky’s the limit, so get going!
