This is the art of minimalism …. emanating joy and freshness with with a few shades of color.. I would surely want to the first one of the pictures on my living room wall…. It has alot of blue, but still is ‘hot’ to touch!
These artworks by emperpep ( http://emperpep.deviantart.com/ ), an anime/manga artist on dA are certainly more than worth a look. The artist’s art seemed to me like digital art, as it was too detailed and vibrant. Oil paints are often soft and yellowish, and with water-paints, I have little experience. So, now i see that water-paints can be used to create paintings that preserve the vibrancy and don’t get all dull as oil paintings ( though oil paintings have their advantages too). I can only wonder that how much time it would have taken to create a single piece…. One also, notices that although most of the paintings here display moon-light scenes, they still are clear as day, and not dark; the details are same as one would do in a daylight scene….
I so want to munch on these excellent pieces of edible art…. But then, I would be destroying art…. Adding detail with kitchen materials would surely be difficult, and one can only imagine that how time consuming would it be to create these….
Being a trance/techno lover and all; I rarely listen to songs and music of the other genres. To me, trance gives me artistic influence and inspiration. But listening to this, has given me inspiration as well. Inspiration to paint something..new, something rugged…. or something classical, as old castles?
2 days ago, I started an oil on canvas painting on an idea that just popped up in my head at that time..Im creating more things and adding details as time passes….
I wanted to experiment with portraits as they are something, that still feel somewhat difficult me. Getting an exact expression or emotion is difficult..and an hour of painting, i came to this:
i got the ‘puzzled’ expression that I wanted, and moving on, I painted her arms differently, the extended (enjoying the rain) arm wouldn’t blend in well with the rest of her…
I wanted to a rainy scene, so I had to add slight semi-transparency; her arms may look bigger here and wider, but that is the illusion made by the glare of the sunlight and the partially blended dark out-lines made……
yesterday, i made the rest of the left side of the background.. And yup! Its starting to look great and the elements are blending with each together one at a time..
These photos may look like screen shots of some Alien Invasion movie; but they are real (no CGI) photographs by Franz Schumacher.
The contrast seems nice and makes his photos lively and ‘full of life’. Furthermore, the colors don’t just contrast, the subject matter contrasts too. Above, you see darkening clouds with furious lightening; below, a calm and peaceful scene of a meadow.
