You are 2/3 the way through our 30 Day Challenge. To see what you missed in the past 19 days, click here. Today we have transcription challenge. For this, make something inspired by Winslow Homer’s “The Herring Net” (oil on canvas 30 1/8 × 48 3/8 in). What’s a transcription? In art, to transcribe is to copy or record information in a different form than the original. To transcribe a painting or drawing is not to copy the artwork exactly, but instead to record observations in a different form. A transcription also doesn’t need to copy everything in an original. An artist can choose to pull selected aspects of information here and there from within an artwork. An artist can choose to transcribe a color palette, size relationships, or an idea from an original. For many artists, the goal is not a perfect and complete copy of an artwork, but instead to use the artwork as a jumping off point to further their own work. Share your drawing on Instagram with these tags: #30sal, #herring Or post to this Padlet.
