  • Only As Good As the Hand Wielding It

    A painting brush isn't animate. It isn't going to teach me how to paint or go about painting art when no one is looking. It needs the hand of the artist to do its job. Penitent Mary Magdalene by Titian, 1560s, oil on canvas. But one thing a brush—by its very nature—is made for is...

  • It's a Sensitive Subject

    Topics and ideas that tend to strike a chord and spark debate are often that way because they are so subjective. In art, color is definitely one of those sensitive subjects because no two people see a color in exactly the same way, nor do painters always mix colors identically to create similar end results...

  • Re: Challenge CHATTER - 2014

    Jeri, don't give up on the acrylics. There are a couple of tricks to remember. Almost all brands of acrylics darken as they dry and they may darken a couple of values. Gerri, this was a plein air acrylic, painting of a garden in the historic "Strawvbery Banke" (that's how they spell...

  • AAA: Abstraction Is an Asset to Your Art

    Abstraction is a key part of how you paint or draw anything. It is seeing completely with the eye, and not allowing the brain to contextualize what we are seeing.

  • Re: Challenge CHATTER - 2014

    I entered one of my Zorn palette paintings in the Dick Blick, Zorn palette contest. At least I'll have a chance in that contest since it's a random draw and not based on any level of skill.

  • 4 Paintings That Rock & Why

    And what do they all have in common? They are all done with acrylic painting techniques . Peter Drake's Mother W/Out is an unusual but fairly uncomplicated composition that makes the viewer question if the figure is real or a figment.
