I chose the above piece because it reminds me very much of the city I work in and yet the way he’s portrayed the otherwise mundane scene is vibrant, interesting, and worthy of conversation. True art.
I chose this piece because it seems inspired both of Dalí and Warhol yet is still all Angeles.
I chose the piece above because of the hard shadows that slice across the fruit. Shadows in watercolor generally get blurred or washed out but not in Krupinski’s work.
It is as if he uses shadows to construct the entire piece and he’s left with a proper representation of where the light is. Reverse photography.
She accomplishes her style using a gravity pour technique and then erasing away the pieces she wants to brighten up.
Her large canvases remind me of Monet’s Water Lilies series. I’d love to see one of these in person.
I’m digging Richard’s style. This painting is from his Splashes of Color series.
I decided to browse around on Ello this morning to find today’s illustration2015 featured painting and I’m glad I did because I found this piece from Zuzia Turek.
I love that Arenhaus used red to light this piece because that is exactly what you’d see at a real observatory — the red light helps keep your pupils dilated to capture as much light as possible.
A loved this little illustration by León that I found on her Instagram and I thought it was the perfect piece to kick off this week’s series which is illustration2015.
What says summertime more than tomatoes in a garden?
Summer is in full swing so this week I’ll be featuring five paintings capturing some of the spirit, activities, and events of summertime.
Delicate Arch by Shari Blaukopf in Montreal, Canada
Töshi, who lived in Japan from 1911-1995, is an amazingly accomplished artist. He has an amazing story and I recommend doing a search on him to read whatever you can.
“American Gothic” by Adam Lister in Beacon, NY.
After watching a video of this piece being done I knew I had to feature this piece of Kingnok’s in the gallery. Although, if you look through his work on Facebook you can see it wasn’t an easy decision.
Schaller tags this as a #sketch in his tweet. Be that as it may, I believe this is a gorgeous piece. I love the yellow of that knoll in the foreground and how the light glances off of the road surface. The composition is also very well balanced.
