    Default Movement (The Dancer)

    Truly effects hide a multitude of sins (and shoddy brushwork).








    A detail crop (so you can see the face without ruining your eyesight).

    Default The Casual Lover

    Rococco style artwork, not exactly my favourite period of art (mainly because I have very little interest in portraits and gatherings on lawns) but in the interests of attempting something new and experimenting I present my version of Antoine Watteau's The Casual Lover, from 1716. Just the head because I doubt if I will manage to do the whole body plus trees and sky of the original, but I may complete it in say a year or so (but then again, I probably won't).

    Hope I don't offend you by saying I prefer your Watteau version over the wine gums one, ha.

    No wine gums ever get unloved here! The very idea that anyone might abuse one of them is appalling!

    Default Warm up on Wednesday

    Because sometimes the sketch I do before I begin my proper stuff is better than I intended.

    Angelo's idea of art is so unique.
    He is just another "interloper" on this forum.

    Default Juan Gris: Cubist Harlequin

    Harlequin at a table from 1918, recreated by myself. I have not found much information about this painting, all I could find was a black and white photograph, so I assume the painting was lost, destroyed, or alternately just drawn and not painted.




    small version



    big version

    Default Occasional Art I Adore

    No long winded essay on the Rococco period of art with this one, just one painting that I am posting because it is damn gorgeous...




    Young Girl Reading by Jean Honore Fragonard, 1776.

    Default Face Sketch with no purpose

    So, the warm up sketch I did on Wednesday, repainted seriously, not very large but it's all in the detail, or something...




    and a picture showing the stages I went through from original pencil sketch, with the page at a weird angle, to the almost finished thing...




    No reason for doing it, just seemed like fun, really.

    Default Leonardo DaVinci

    Sometimes you see a picture that makes you realise whatever aspirations you may have at being good at drawing are just laughable, this is one of those pictures...




    Head of a Woman, 1473.

    Default Art I adore (No.2)

    A few of my favourite paintings by relatively obscure artists.

    Woman in profile with flowerpot, 1908, by Lajos Gulacsy (October 12, 1882 - February 21, 1932).



    Portrait of Schmierer Roth by Ion Theodorescu-SionIon (January 2, 1882 - March 31, 1939)



    Head of an Italian Girl, 1886, by Joaquin Sorolla y Bastida (February 27, 1863 – August 10, 1923).



    The Red Scarf, 1925, by Nicolae Vermont (October 10, 1866 - June 14, 1932).

    Default Yep, I finally did a animal picture.

    I must admit I never do animal pictures because they do not interest me that much, maybe I am too engrossed in the flashy unrealism of comic art, but I did this one because I felt like it and I dedicate it to iAlissa as I miss her artwork on this forum.

    Default End of Part Two








    A few incomplete things to pass the time until I figure out what to do next.
