Although I haven't seen it yet-  I've heard great things about "Gerard
Richter Painting" as a look inside the artist's work.
http://www.gerhardrichterpainting.com/

Mostly just playing now at smaller art-houses, but you can find out where
on the website

And, although it's fiction - Basquiat (1996) is really engaging and may be
helpful.

I've made a few short pieces about artists as well, and I think the
important thing for me has been to find what motivates the artist in
his/her work and then use that as motivation for the film itself. (Like if
an artist is greatly inspired by nature - including that raw inspiration
material into the film can give the audience a sense of "seeing as the
artist")

Just some thoughts - good luck!  I'd love to hear how it goes!
