Howard Greenberg Gallery. Watercolor Paintings by Steve Hanks | Art and Design. Steve Hanks is recognized as one of the best watercolor artists working today. The detail, color and realism of Steve Hanks’ paintings are unheard of in this difficult medium. A softly worn patterned quilt, the play of light on the thin veil of surf on sand, or the delicate expression of a child. Steve Hanks captures these patterns of life better than anyone.

Steve Hanks was born into a military family in San Diego in 1949. The family was transferred to New Mexico when Steve was a junior.

Learn How to Draw Grass, Pencil Drawing Lesson. Use of Negative Drawing in Art The title of this article is really too specific as the techniques described here apply as much to the drawing of hair as to grass. This is also an introduction to the use of "negative" drawing - drawing around white space, which only exists in your mind until you surround it with positive marks. I will cover "negative drawing" in more detail in a later article. So, what is "negative" drawing? What do you see when you look at this picture on the right? You can of course draw grass in any way you choose from "sketchy" (which serves its purpose here as this drawing is just 1½" high and the grass exists only to place the tractor in space)... ...to where it plays a full role as an integral part of the "reality" of the drawing.

In both cases the technique is much the same. It confuses the rational element that tries to control the creative side.

Over the years he has found various techniques in how to manipulate and bend paper to make these magnificent masterpieces. I’m really happy to have him featured on our site since he is one of my favorite paper artists! Also be sure to check out the videos of the artist in action!

Untitled. Stunning Portraits Of The World’s Remotest Tribes Before They Pass Away (46 pics) Living in a concrete box with hot water pouring from the tap, a refrigerator cooling our food and wi-fi connecting us to the rest of the world, we can barely imagine a day in a life of, say, Tsaatan people. They move 5 to 10 times per year, building huts when the temperature is -40 and herding reindeer for transportation, clothing and food. “Before They Pass Away,” a long-term project by photographer Jimmy Nelson, gives us the unique opportunity to discover more than 30 secluded and slowly vanishing tribes from all over the world. [Read more...] Spending 2 weeks in each tribe, Jimmy became acquainted with their time-honoured traditions, joined their rituals and captured it all in a very appealing way. His detailed photographs showcase unique jewellery, hairstyles and clothing, not to forget the surroundings and cultural elements most important to each tribe, like horses for Gauchos.

Traditional Pinup Photos with Splashes of Milk as Clothes Captured with High-Speed Photography. Inspired by the classic pin-ups of the 1940’s and 1950’s, photographer Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz came up with a current version of those iconic posters. The twist introduced by the London based lensman was to use a highly unusual substance to cloth his models. Wieczorkiewicz used milk, (yes the kind you get from cows) along with high speed photography to capture the drink while being poured over his scantily clad (or near naked) models.

He snapped hundreds of photos of every pose while pouring actual milk over the ladies, producing some unbelievable shots. All of the images of milk splashing on these women are real, with each of the milk ‘dresses” worn by the pretty models produced thru a layering process using dozens of different photographs. The photos were created in the absence of any illustrations, CGI, and Photoshop. The collection is entitled Milky Pinups, which you can take either literally or figuratively. Wieczorkiewicz shares some of the action behind the scenes on his blog: Place A Cylindrical Mirror On These Drawings And They Instantly Come To Life. István Orosz is a Hungarian artist who is known for his use of the technique anamorphosis. Orosz will create a drawing, that at first glance could seem abstract. It is not until he places a cylindrical mirror on the artwork that the illustration comes to life. Sometimes, hidden pictures are revealed, or the image itself is totally transformed.

He has combined several drawings to complete a whole picture as well. He attended school for graphic design, but after graduation began to design for the theatre and animated films. Eventually he also designed movie, exhibition, and theatre posters. He enjoys the idea of visual paradox and illusionist techniques, but combines them with conventional techniques, such as etching and woodworking. Loish.net. ArtStation.

Modern origami design & photo jun mitani Jun Mitani is a computer engineer, but he’s also a paper artisan; he designs origami pieces with computer programs that he develops himself.

Seems complicated ? Not for him, as he explained to us: « My speciality in the field of computer graphics is geometric modeling, so it’s not difficult for me to develop computer programs for designing origami once the underlying theory of origami geometry is clarified. » The beauty of his creations might be in the clearness and smooth complexity of the shapes, almost just curves. The form is completely calculated by computer, it looks like an impossible things to make with just one piece of paper, but it is; Jun first start to work on his program, explores variety of origami shapes before he began to fold a sheet of real paper.The programs generate a crease pattern (a pattern of valley fold lines and mountain fold lines).

The pattern is scored on a sheet of paper by a cutting plotter. Text by Caroline Aufort. The world's first skyscraper: a history of cities in 50 buildings, day 9 | Cities. It won’t surprise anybody to learn that the very first skyscraper went up in the United States, but it will surprise some to learn that it went up in Chicago. While it didn’t take Manhattan long to claim the steel-framed high-rise as its own, the skyscraper boom began in the capital of the American Midwest in 1885 with William Le Baron Jenney’s Home Insurance Building, which rose to its then-impressive height of 10 storeys (and, after an 1890 addition, 12) by means of metal, rather than just masonry. Legend has it that Jenney, an engineer by training and an École Centrale Paris classmate of Gustave Eiffel (designer of the eponymous tower), first suspected that an iron skeleton could hold up a building when he saw his wife place a heavy book atop a small birdcage, which easily supported its weight.

Not everybody immediately accepted the soundness of Jenney’s design. “Where is there such a building?” Sculpture. Increíbles obras de Felice Varini. 100 of the Best Street Art Photos for 2013.
