From Memory


I saw some work today that was clearly expressive with a minimum of marks. I tried to emulate that work in this "memory" ink drawing.

Ink drawing: Celeste Bergin, From memory, sepia drawing ink on 8 x 10 cardstock

Such a interesting concept painting from memory. I haven't tried it- I usually use reference then put a twist on it.

:) It's amazing what you get when painting from memory.

Very unique. Bravo!

This is satisfying. I am not entirely certain why, but it is. You are un-predictable.

Different from your usual work- yet still you. I think it's your use of value. Keep 'em coming Celeste! OK- I know you will- I just needed to let you know I'm always in your cheering section. :-))

This is truly interesting, Celeste, and I find myself thinking about what you were doing as this one came to life. I think it came out fabulously too!

Painting from memory is fun--no mistakes. I like this painting; it reminds me of work by Martin Maloney and Brian Calvin (two artists from my book, "Painting People").

This is so fresh, so immediate. Memory keeps it simple.
