To be able to perfectly explain Realistic Minimalism is simple: for example, drawing a hand by not drawing a hand but by drawing the shadows the hand casts in its contours and the elements around it. Realistic Minimalism is all about the use of shadows. In my work “Minimalism meets Realism” (image 1) I make use of shadows as the base of the entire piece. The use of minimalism in Ileana Hunter’s works are unique due to the fact that minimalism traditionally referred to the minimalism of mediums, materials and the elements within a composition, not the minimalism of a realistic face. She uses the technique of minimalism in a unique way which I also incorporated into my
This might be connected to the fact that painting this picture was for the artist not a simple task and he had to face a few technical challenges while creating his masterpiece. Some of them he wanted to confront while some of them arose on their own. The challenge that van Gogh has successfully overcome working on this picture is the use of highly contrasting colors. He managed to create the best combination of the dominating on the picture blue and yellow colors and their undertones to create a marvelous picture of the night sky. Another challenge to the artist was the need to paint the picture from memory and not outdoors, as he prefers.
Most often, his works used blues, browns and greens in accordance to the earth itself. He also incorporated neutral grays, typically for underpainting. Leonardo incorporated glazes using the da Vinci painting technique of sfumato. Meaning “like smoke,” smufato consists of applying dark glazes in place of blunt colors to add a depth that could not be achieved otherwise. Leonardo da Vinci is quoted wiexplained how he created compound colors by painting a transparent colour over th saying that “when a transparent color lies over another color differing from it.
I love it how it is astounding and it demands a lot of technical skills. The fact that photographs are the source to hyperrealism paintings is true. I feel that hyperrealism is taking something real and the limitations of a human eye. Even though the paintings are made by just projecting a photograph onto a larger scale of canvas, photorealism and hyperrealism paintings may not be very creative or imaginative. Glenn Vilppu, an artist once mentioned that “never copy the model, analyze it!” However, with the practice of looking at something and understanding it and analyzing the proportion of he subject, the structure, the lighting, the gesture and so on.
For example, a piece of abstract art can have ridged lines and warm vibrant colors. The ridged lines may be representing anger in the artists painting, but the warm colors give the viewer a different opinion. This is why the colors and shapes also help to define the different styles that are encompassed in abstract art. One style is curvilinear. When abstract art relates to this type of style, the motifs employed are interlaced patterns, spirals, and knots.
This fluid technique of El Greco is a little odd. According to “biography.com” El Greco’s later works are marked by exaggerated, and often distorted, figures, stretching beyond the realities of the human body which is what modern viewers generally have found so appealing. If this is true, El Greco changed his painting style just for the portrait of his son, then changed back to his abnormal style of painting. As previously noted, depicted in this photo is Jose Manuel. Jose Manuel is holding paint brushes because El Greco is trying
The “natural distance” afforded to the painter separates them from the political implications of the depicted event as well as future action. For Romantic paintings, this distancing also involves the injunction of sublime nature before political realities. For example, “Bitumen” asserts
When the idea that tools were used to create this effect, the majestic wonder is almost striped from the oil painting. This is because it leaves viewers feeling like they have been cheated. That the beauty of the piece has been taken away. With Tim’s almost effortless version of “The Music Lesson” the audience begins to hesitate on the dexterity of the painting, and even begin to question Vermeer. The authentic nature of the painting is virtually gone.
The first person to have influenced Pollock was Frederick Schwankovsky; he “gave Pollock some rudimentary training in drawing and painting, introduced him to advanced currents of European modern art, and encouraged his interest in theosophical literature”(). Their relationship soon ended after Pollock was expelled from Riverside High School. The next person Pollock would come under influence was Thomas Hart Benton, “Pollock’s work was strongly influenced by the compositional methods and regionalist subject matter of his [companion] Benton”. There were many more artists that influenced Pollock, but these above specifically built the fundamentals for young Pollock. Pollock’s style also developed through his influence of achohol, ,apparently after his experiences in psychiatric treatment for alcoholism,his work transformed into semi abstract and “showed the assimilation of motifs from the modern Spanish artists Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró, as well as the Mexican muralist José Clemente Orozco.
