Those are gorgeous Paul! I can't imagine what a scene like the Venice art event must be like. I've gone to the SF national/intl dealers event at Fort Mason a couple of times and even that was kind of overwhelming.

hey there say, FortMental...

oh my, that is so funny--they are so SIMILAR, :) what a things to see! say, i was later able to spot that pita's
eye, (her right) our left-side of view, was somehow off a tad... or the line was a tad 'not up to par'...

well, now i will not worry... as, the famous photo, you showed now, has eyes that are off a tad, too... :)

i wonder if the photographer that had pita, SIT, had seen that artwork, first and hope to have a photo, in his own way, to match, :)


gary, as to this:
The proper proportions and perspective of the human face is not easy to achieve.

oh my, so very true... and every time the head moves, new angle are there to conquer, right when you THINK you understand something, :O
and then, there are a few varieties of nose, mouths, etc, those many eyes are similar, there is chins and jaws, and oh my! ...

i mean, wow, if you do a cat, dog or elephant, at least certain breeds, etc, have basic formats nearly the same... (expressions make the special pets, here, in this case)...

then, after thinking you've learned the face...
THEN, there is learning to get A PORTRAIT likeness of someone, and
man oh man... :O it nearly makes you feel like you are slipping back down the trail and all the dirt is sliding down with you, :O


then--once you get the face drawn and say, "wow, i think i got it" well, you add the paint and say, "OOPS" i just lost the whole likeness, :O


whewww...

at least, trees, etc, you can allow for 'winds of change' :))




i was painting my brother howard, a ways back and by some wrong move of the brush, i THEN had MATT! there before me, and not howard, :O

sometimes i have it almost right, and it needs a small change and the brush HITS wrong, and then it far worse than before and i nearly have to start over, :((


HAVE FUN!! you will still love the adventure, gary!



*thank you to phylp...


and keep sharing... i love art...


i have sound some other painters, again, with neat paintings, that i will try to share, later... just 'finds' on the net, as to folks we've really not really heard about... but neat stuff...

^^^ Nothing better!

I have a recommendation for a movie for the art lovers, called "Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters"

It's a very interesting documentary about the artist and his process. He creates elaborately staged scenes featuring people and objects, and then photographs them, then does intense editing on the digital images to create the exact image he wants and finally prints these very large format prints. The scenes are so big he has a crew of dozens of people to help with the lighting, filming staging etc. The final product reminds me of Edward Hopper (though I prefer Hopper). Even if you don't like the work the film is fascinating to watch.

But seriously, fellow-topers...some good stuff here.
And with the Indian Basketry of Julia Parker four blocks away at the Courthouse Museum, it's a two-fer.

Just loaded all of my stuff in the car to take to San Francisco for my art show. Leaving today for 5 weeks of holiday madness. Snapped a few pics of the OOAK's. Sorry about the crappy screen. I always forget to take pics then it all sells and I'm bummed I didn't take pics. I posted a couple other pics of the landscapes a few pages back.
