Art Tutorial 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. Materials? Figure 1.1. So... a ream of the cheapest copier paper you can find, or in a pinch, the inside of a pizza box. The most important thing to keep in mind is to start with the largest shapes, and gradually work down to the small details. The best way to explain this is by example. The first step is to block in the large shapes. Figure 1.3. Now pause and check if everything is still correct. The proportions are okay: the line through the eyes is supposed to be a bit below halfway (say, at 5/8ths) the lines of the ear tips and the chin. Figure 1.4. Eyeballing diagonal lines through your figure is called “caliper vision” by [Ryd]. Figure 1.5.

Wikiversity artists blog Tesia Blackburn, author of Acrylic Painting With Passion, speaks to the difficulty of portraying reality, and the idea of playing with abstraction to convey your message. "There is always something just under the surface of things," says artist John Jude Palencar. Celebrate National Craft Month by participating in the Art Abandonment movement, where artists leave random works of art in public spaces to inspire and delight others. “In many of my water paintings," says Charlene Gerrish, “I focus almost solely on the reflections, because that’s where the strongest graphic possibilities lie. I love when a painting looks like an abstract design up close, but reveals its true subject at a distance." Read more here! It stands to reason that the more you do something, the better you’ll get. “The subject of Ray is my brother,” says Debra Carr.

adam and eve in art dance of death (how mediaeval people viewed death) Early Christian art and architecture Early Christian art and architecture (or Paleochristian art) is the art produced by Christians or under Christian patronage from the earliest period of Christianity to, depending on the definition used, some time between about 350 and 525. In practice identifiably Christian art only survives from the 2nd century onwards.[1] After 550 at the latest, Christian art is classified as Byzantine, or of some other regional type.[2] It is hard to know when distinctly Christian art began. Early Christians used the same artistic media as the surrounding pagan culture. Early Christians adapted Roman motifs and gave new meanings to what had been pagan symbols. Early Christian art is generally divided into two periods by scholars: before and after either the Edict of Milan of 313, bringing the so-called Triumph of the Church under Constantine, or the First Council of Nicea in 325. Symbols[edit] The dove is a symbol of peace and purity. Christian Art prior to 313[edit]

Via (Walyou) scott eaton Marble sculpture Marble sculpture is the art of creating three-dimensional forms from marble. Sculpture is among the oldest of the arts. Even before painting cave walls, early humans fashioned shapes from stone. Material origin and qualities[edit] Marble is a metamorphic rock derived from limestone, composed mostly of calcite (a crystalline form of calcium carbonate, CaCO3). Advantages[edit] Among the commonly available stones, only marble has a slight surface translucency that is comparable to that of human skin. Disadvantages[edit] The West Wind Marble does not bear handling well as it will absorb skin oils when touched, which leads to yellow brownish staining. Developing a sculpture[edit] The work begins with the selection of a stone for carving. When he or she is ready to carve, the carver usually begins by knocking off, or "pitching", large portions of unwanted stone. Once the general shape of the statue has been determined, the sculptor uses other tools to refine the figure. Tools[edit] See also[edit]

HUMAN PROPORTIONS START WITH A (3 x 4) OVAL. Divide this head like this:The top of the skull.The pupils are in the middle of the head, top to bottom.The bottom of the nose is 1.5 eye widths from the eye line.1 eye width below the nose is between the lips.1/3 below between the lips and the chin is the chin crease.I started with an oval that fit on my skull's front view. My horizontal center line of the skull dividing the top to bottom is between the pupils. My head is 5 eyes wide not including my ears. When drawing the head I consider the horizontal eye line the center of the head. The head sideways is one head-length high and one head-length wide. The ear hole is in line with bottom of the nose, and the backbone/skull pivot point. The bottom of the ear varies with the individual and age. The face triangle is from the center of each pupil, through the nostrils of the nose to a point between the top front teeth. This charcoal self-portrait drawing is on a white background. 1.
