Helping Christina in Christina’s World | Art Remix

Christina’s World — you may know this painting. If not, this is one of the most famous paintings that I didn’t create. It was created by Andrew Wyeth in 1948. “Christina’s world” is a very sad painting which shows a helpless woman lying on a field. This painting made me depressed as I am also a lonely guy waiting for a miracle to happen. I wished I could help Christina in her world. I wished I could see her face and spend some time with her and know her more. She could be the one who can understand my thoughts and feelings. But it is just a painting and I couldn’t do anything.

Suddenly a thought came to my mind — “It is time to remix this painting!” Like music remix, art remix is adding/altering a few details in a painting. It is easy and fun to do.

I decided to help Christina and began digital painting. First I did a rough stickman sketch(pose) with my 9 years old Microsoft mouse which was very difficult to use for digital art.

Okay, so my stickman model is ready 😀 I added some colours — blue, brown, grey(for shadows) — and checked whether the idea is still okay.

It looked fine for me and encouraged me to add more details: shadows(grey colour), reflection(white colour), skin tone(mix of orange, red, yellow and white). Thanks to my big specs that I don’t have to draw my eyes. I was so engaged in this art remix that hours went like a 15minute Dora cartoon. After 5-6 hours, I was happy with the output and zealous to share on facebook.

I looked at the art remix and told myself, “1000 likes for sure.”

I posted this new art remix and waited for likes. At the end of the day, the picture hardly got 20 likes. Hmm… But on the bright side:

  1. I gave a helping hand to Christina in her own world
  2. My old facebook crush, the Romanian girl, liked the picture.

The End
