A- Z of Watercolour Techniques When we learn to write, we begin by learning to shape letters. We then join these together to form words, then words form sentences, sentences form paragraphs and paragraphs form stories. After all, we wouldn’t dream of expecting someone learning a new language to start by writing a novel! Yet when we are learning to paint we want to start by painting a picture. The act of simply colouring in shapes with washes doesn’t allow opportunity for the medium itself to be fully exploited. We know our arty alphabet is a few letters short, but it's nearly there!

Art References: Archive 100 Famous Artists And Their Studios | Bored Panda A good studio for an artist is the most important place.

I bet that you saw lots of their works in the museums and art history books, but often the artist himself is left unseen.

Artistic Anatomy Is learning to draw anatomy in a classroom more secure (since there is a teacher to check the work and possibly a book to study from) in practicing artistic anatomy drawing, or should artists focus on just practicing from images on websites/blogs like this tumblr? Asketh - pjmx24 Depending on the size of your class and where you are, your teacher can be a great guide to help you and show you what areas you need to focus on more to improve and give you good material to work from! Outside of class (or if you have no class) you should focus on drawing in a sketchbook dedicated for life drawing/anatomy. Hope that gives you some insight! ~ Introduction ~ | Renaissance du nu Contexte Historique en Italie à la Renaissance du XIV et au début du XVI ème siècle. La Renaissance, d’après plusieurs historiens et chercheurs, aurait commencé en l’an 1453. Nous allons alors nous demander pourquoi cette date ? A cette période précise c’est la fin de la guerre de Cent Ans, qui confrontait deux nations le Royaume Français et Anglais. La seule ville où la culture de l’Antiquité était conservée est alors « détruite » et de nombreux réfugiés – souvent des savants ou des artistes – apportent avec eux leurs connaissances artistiques, scientifiques ainsi que mécaniques. On redécouvre alors vers le XVème siècle, des livres et manuscrits oubliés. L’humanisme englobe plusieurs idées mais met en valeur la pensée, la culture et l’art ce qui permet de développer plusieurs domaines et de faire de nombreuses découvertes et inventions. C’est le début de la Renaissance philosophique, scientifique et artistique. Pauline Like this: J'aime chargement…

How to Perfect your Impasto Painting I started out painting in a very controlled way. I’d always been heavily influenced by Lucian Freud and work that was hard won; photographic in a way but thick with paint. However when I moved back to Leicester from Bristol, it just wasn’t making me happy anymore. I literally bought canvases and big brushes, and decided to work on the head. I tried to make it more physical and expressive with thicker paint and took more chances; with the work I did before, I wasn’t taking a chance and suddenly I was working on something that could go wrong at any minute. Subjects I treat all of my paintings as ‘portraits’. With a subject that is quite emotive, I push myself to ‘feel’ paint rather than just see it as a mechanical device. Heads are my constant – the subject I go back to if I’m having a difficult time or want to push the work forward. My double portraits are about the relationship between two people in the same space. Composition Technique Head of a Proud Woman is all about rhythm.

Practice Tools for Artists - Line of Action Figure DrawingAnimal DrawingHands & Feet DrawingFaces & Expression DrawingNew here? Learn how to make use of these tools to become a better artist. How to use these tools These tools are ideally suited for gesture drawing practice, but can be used with many styles of drawing practice. Gesture drawings are works of art created in an extremely short amount of time, traditionally 30 seconds — and certainly no more than two minutes. Why bother with drawing something in a time period so frustratingly short? One of the most common mistakes that artists make is getting too detailed too soon. Regular gesture drawing can be a fantastic way to increase your artistic skill. Detailed Instructions Beyond gesture drawing Gesture drawing is a great foundation skill, but of course there is so much more to becoming a capable artist.

Dossier : Le nu (histoire) Alors que le nu véhicule dans l’Antiquité une idée de perfection et de pureté, il devient tabou et choquant au Moyen-Age, condamné par la religion catholique. C’est encore une fois l’art qui lui permettra une réhabilitation, d’abord chez les humanistes, pour rendre hommage au corps et pour servir la science. Le nu est également synonyme de scandale en art, permettant un progrès certains pour enfin arriver à l’art que l’on connaît aujourd’hui. La place du nu dans l’art illustre au mieux la société au fil des époques. Avec l’avènement de la photographie, le nu se démocratise, les effets de lumière le sublime, les angles de vues le dévoilent, il n’est plus tabou et devient un genre à part entière.

Női- és férfi aktfotók a fényképezés korai szakaszából (18+) - Mai Manó Ház Az aktfényképezés története egészen a fotográfia születéséig nyúlik vissza, hiszen Daguerre felfedezése után nem sokkal már az első aktfotók (dagerrotípiák) is elkészültek. Az ezidőtájt készült aktképekre a pikáns témavilág volt jellemző, majd később egyre nagyobb igény jelentkezett a művészi aktok és az erotikus képek jelentésének pontos megfogalmazására, valamint a kettő közötti határvonal meghúzására. A fényképezésben élen járó országok sajátos megjelölést találtak a művészi akt megnevezésére, amellyel kellőképpen kifejezhető volt a tevékenység művészi rangja. Fotó: Ismeretlen: Ülő, női akt, c.1850 „A művészi akt kifejezést – írja Kenneth Clark – a XVIII. század elejének művészetkritikusai alkották azzal a céllal, hogy e megnevezés nemesítő rangjával fogadtassák el az akkor még igen puritán társadalomban az Itáliából tömegével érkező, meztelen férfiakat és nőket ábrázoló szobrokat és festményeket.
