An engraved gem is a small gemstone , usually semi-precious , [ 1 ] that has been carved, in the Western tradition normally with images or inscriptions only on one face. The engraving of gemstones was a major luxury art form in the ancient world, and an important one in some later periods. [ 2 ] Strictly speaking, engraving means carving in intaglio, with the design cut into the flat background of the stone, but relief carvings, with the design projecting out of the background as in nearly all cameos , are also covered by the term. The activity is also called gem carving , and the artists gem-cutters . References to antique gems , and intaglios in a jewellery context, will almost always mean carved gems. Vessels like the Cup of the Ptolemies and heads or figures carved in the round are also known as " hardstone carvings " and similar terms.

William-Adolphe Bouguereau ( French: [buɡ(ə)ˈʁo] , November 30, 1825 – August 19, 1905) was a French academic painter and traditionalist. In his realistic genre paintings he used mythological themes, making modern interpretations of classical subjects, with an emphasis on the female human body. [ 1 ] During his life he enjoyed significant popularity in France and the United States, was given numerous official honors, and received top prices for his work. [ 2 ] As the quintessential salon painter of his generation, he was reviled by the Impressionist avant-garde. [ 2 ] By the early twentieth century, Bouguereau and his art fell out of favor with the public, due in part to changing tastes. [ 2 ] In the 1980s, a revival of interest in figure painting led to a rediscovery of Bouguereau and his work. [ 2 ] Throughout the course of his life, Bouguereau executed 822 known finished paintings, although the whereabouts of many are still unknown. [ 3 ] [ edit ] Life and career

Some Like it Hot | Colored Pencil Art Sizzles I can’t stop looking at Arlene Steinberg’s painting, Paradise Dreams (below; colored pencil and water-soluble crayons on heated paper, 12×12). Each time I flip through my newest issue of The Artist’s Magazine, I seem to stop on this page and stare, enjoying the color and depth of this image. At first the abstract quality of it lured me in, but as I look more, memories of Hawaii sneak into my consciousness. But that’s another story. Spring Rejuvenation

The second bit of advice a beginning artist usually gets is “ draw from life ”. And it is excellent advice! After all, if you can't draw what is right in front of you, you certainly won't be able to draw what you see in your imagination either. But the advice is a bit short, and will usually leave the artist behind unsure of what to do next.
