Stripey Socks

- by Mark Satchwill

This week's theme: Past EBSQ Ripped Off Shows

This month EBSQ is running the annual show that may be the most enjoyed by EBSQ members. This is the month for the annual EBSQ Ripped Off Show. EBSQ members pair up and "rip off" each other's work. The fruits of this effort are then entered in the show for all to see. This week Art Of The Day looks at work from previous EBSQ Ripped Off Shows.

If you want to see what EBSQ artists are coming up with this year, please check the "8th Annual Ripped Off Show". New work will be added until the end of the month so be sure to check in often.

Art: Stripey Socks by Artist Mark Satchwill
This is my rip of Tyler Smith's "Midge 2". I chose this piece from Tyler's gallery because I liked the composition and the angle looking down on the girl. I liked the whole image of the figure too and the striped socks. I chose to heighten these elements and give my image a more "pop" look using watercolor for the figure and matte gouache for the spiralling background.
