Can we get another art thread going?
The stuff posted in those is usually pretty nice.
I'll post some of what I have saved.
It is incredible how Schiele manages to paint figures so distorted, yet retains anatomic accuracy within his works.
Posting pictures I took in some local museums
inb4 abstract art isn't art hurr muh details
Schiele is fucking amazing
Anyone else kind of like surrealism, but not the aesthetic of Dali?
There's something about the playfulness of the imagery i like, but it's juxtaposed with this very realistic way of painting that i'm not a big fan of.
I think i kind of prefere Magritte's paintings to Dali's
Shit, why is it turned 90° counterclockwise?
Pic related was really creepy.
inb4 beksinki. not that he's bad but he shows up in damn near every one of these threads
No, I'm actually talking about people who only like very detailed, realistic paintings.
Love this guy.
Any painters in this thread?
Pic related was in a horrible place. It was big room with 8-10 gigantic paintings on the walls, 2-4 smaller ones, a 5 m long string hanging from the ceiling and several sculptures on the floor. It was a shock to enter the room. You get bombarded with so many things from so many directions, it gets ridiculously confusing. Later I came back there and saw a sculpture I haven't noticed at all the first time!
Have way too much free time.
Pic is Peter Kogler's... uh... wallpaper in Zagreb MSU. There was also a cool sound/computer art installation by him: http://youtu.be/wiSac27C-Hg
>paint qts all day every day
>enjoy critical acclaim
>get paid out your ass
show me a more beautiful face i dare you
I want to start painting with oil paint, but have no idea what to get and where to start.
Anyone got any tips? I heard that oil painting can be pretty dangerous, and you shouldn't paint with it in a small area.
My room is very small, would this be a serious problem, and especially on a larger scale?
Depends. What do you want to start painting? If its people, then you should get well acquainted with drawing the human figure first. If anything else, just start throwing colors onto the canvas. Yeah small room, maybe not. The paint has a strong smell.
i will, but will this smell and the fumes continue in the drying process, can't that take days?
was also thinking of watering down the color for my bigger projects (and maybe some smaller), can that be harmful in small spaces?
alright pals im out, enjoy your day ;)
She looks like a blank faced model. Like any fashion magazine today
and he drawd a naked girl wat a PURV XO
Mm, lovely how he plays with flatness/volume
well tip o'the cock to you sir, i'll be on me merry way
no, i mean like, the literal paint sticking out.
you'll see what i mean in this pic
Looking up that Urs Amann stuff from above I found this. Would go good with Saint Coco
that's fucking hilarious.
anyone got that 'palm' picture or whatever, it's the one with broad, red/orange strokes creating a palm-like figure. often used as an example of how modern art is degenerate, but it really is beautiful.
But he makes them look weird. Like looking at bugs in a microscope.
Gustave Dore. His work is amazing
(If you're worried about not-being-polite, you needn't worry about it at all)
He stood beside the curtain.
‘There’s nothing going on out there, if that’s what you’re wondering’
Streetlight flooded through a large front-room window and a shadow casted itself onto the wall opposite; its meagre outline disfigured by some furniture.
From outside the window one could barely make out the face of the figure. A beard, black and unkempt, though not quite rugged. Two sides to a nose; feint. A furrowed brow, eyes narrow, a conical jaw.
Its posture, limited. It did not impose and yet did not restrain. To be frank, it simply was.
The streetlight died and with it, the shadow. He swept the curtain back to the middle
‘Want to turn on the light?’
Andrea del Sarto doesn't get enough love.
An almost subtle burst of fear swept through my nerves as I came across a weary, untouched landscape, the legends called the slash.
/r/ing books on appreciating art
I want to like art for a reason other than the superficial one that "it looks nice" but I don't really know how I can just go about examining the inner workings of high art.
Are those bare legs or just flesh toned pants?
This one's fine, those listed by those anons were crap. Absolute crap.
Cy Twombly and Rothko are great painters though. Shitty paintings of women in this thread are the real garbage
Abstract painting is hit or miss, but abstract sculpture is usually pretty good because even if it looks like nonsense there's still some craft involved in getting it to not topple over and not just anyone can do it.
I do ugly things or banal figures too.
But to bring up Liepke once more. Milt Kobayashi does the same subject matter, but better imo. Pictured.
Oskar Kokoschka. Are you on your phone or something?
finishing thread on a good note
Just a gross painting
Saturn swallowed them whole. It was a logic problem of sorts. First gods were kept inside mother earth, but she conspired to let them out, second time Saturn had to swallow them, but they're immortal still and got out. The painting is just gratuitous gore.
watched a documentary called 'Brakhage' where it says the the paint he used likely gave him bladder cancer. also pretty good documentary; his kids talk about how hed get into these states once in a while where hed forget his name and speak random numbers over and over, they said he looked like an entirely different person, and his voice sounded different, he forgot how to do things like answer the phone
Vaguely related but does anyone know if there is much of a neo-aboriginal art movement (speaking of the australian aborigines), either themselves or foreigners playing with their traditional dots and patterns upon or with influence of all the art framework that had/has passed them by
He's especially fascinating when you read into his story. His paintings grew out of his appreciation for animals and their seeming peacefulness in contrast to man. He tried to paint an interpretation of the world through their eyes.
As WWI began to grow more evident, his regards to man fell lower and he also grew to accept that animal and man were more similar than they were different. His later paintings were less like The Yellow Cow and more like Fate of the Animals (image limit hit).
Eventually he was killed in Verdun during wartime. The kicker is that he was supposed to be pulled from the war as an artist of importance, but the withdrawal order didn't make it to him in time.
>his regards to man fell lower
how, you first made it sound like he prefered animals
>and he also grew to accept that animal and man were more similar than they were different
how did he think that they were more similar?
