Thanks for the heads up. I just spent a nice spring morning with my macbook looking at some very inspiring artwork. I wonder how long it took the winner to paint his image. It goes to show that this competition has risen to amazing heights and raised the bar and conscioussness of artists working in a realistic tradition. Here on the west coast, the Californis Art Club has raised the bar as well and the look that wins is usually more on the Alla Prima approach.
"This is inspiring"??? Great patience for rendering I guess. The top image kind of lacks an authentic sense of space to my eye.
The painting on top is just beautiful. From a technical standpoint, it does have a believable sense of space as the composition follows the rules of perspective. One may prefer the aesthetic of alla prima painting over a more refined style. But it's a mistake to attribute well rendered paintings to simply "spending the time and having the patience."
Greetings for this splendid place.Here, we can see Art and read about it.I'm searching the blogs to discover interesting contents and I'm making a selection.I'm a painter myself. From Portugal.I have a point of view that defend the need of some changes in contemporary Art (at least here, in Portugal).On my blog, there is a discussion running about this subject and I would like to make it wider.The blog is in portuguese, but have a translation tool, that makes a enough competent work to understand the sense of the text. However, if there will be requests enough, I will provide english versions for the existing posts and for the further ones and, as I previously said, I can explain everything or even send partial or total translations to you. You are welcome to comment in plain english, and can translate the other comments using the google translater or any other.If you find the idea interesting enough, you are invited to come and comment. You'll be trully welcome.I'll follow the things aroud here.Ah! By the way, I find this top image very, very interesting. I don't see any problem with perspective or sense of space. Of course the rendering is amazing and makes all the sense.
