As we all know, Painting is divided into two broad of categories. The images of the first category is the objective of creative works; and the second category is the subjective expression of creative work. Baroque, Locke grams, classical, college, romanticism, realism, photographic realism and impressionism is based on recreate natural, which perform artists’ different thoughts and purpose. Painting is a mode of creative expression, and the forms are numerous.  :gl2:

Hi Janet,
Your analysis is way above my head.  I love visiting art galleries and museums around the world, Europe, Asia, and North America (unfortunately I was not privilege to visit Africa short of the Sinai nor South America is so so far away). 

I have great admirations for most styles and I am hubbled by what fellow artists accomplish... from the great classic artists to the modern ones.  I include in my admiration the style my fellows PB and of course our great tutors Dennis and Nolan.

I have come to see that some of the very best artist's style lye low and are not on front page... while they should.

Hi Annnie,
 
I am admire to hear that  you have been  so many countries and  visited so many art gallery.These experiences must help you a lot.

We all know that some  unknown artists are excellent. This does not affect our appreciation. Maybe we can share something about them with others.

 :think:   As a learning and developing artist..... I think I like where I am best.

Finding and developing one's own style is a very exciting part of the journey. By all means study and learn from masters.....but one doesn't have to lock ones self into a particular style or period. Don't be afraid to take what you've learned and play about, meld those techniques into something truly unique.  :painting:

I don't have a favourite style..... although I love certain artists' styles.  I love the Fauves, like pointillism (but there is no way I'd try to paint in it), don't really like cubism, or impressionism, or cute. Mostly I'm drawn to colour... if it has colour combinations in an arrangement I like, I like it  :D..it doesn't matter if it's abstract or naïve. Maybe I'm just not experienced enough. I've heard that as you become a more practised artist, values become more important than colour. Has anyone had that experience? :-\

That's very kind of you say, we often neglect the evolution of ourselves.  I did not realize this point, and using another view to find the best point of ourseoves. Amazing :thankyou:

I appreciate all the good work, and the completion of a painting is unique.  In my opinion, I can't say which one I prefer, but some people  are very clear of what they enhoyed vary from person to person. Maybe I will find the one I enjoyed mostly later. :gl2:

Maybe you will create your own "school"/style of art for others to imitate. Go for it.... Keep on  :painting:

For me I love a Classical old European style. I was at the Museum of Art last Friday here in Indianapolis and it was wonderful. I was in my element for sure! One artist I adore is Seargent. The way he painted fabric on his portraits is to die for! But like you Linley I'm drawn to color. I saw a Monet at the museum and I just about fainted! His use of color was amazing. Oh I could go on forever . I just love Art! All sorts.

Values are indeed the more important factor. Even if your colour is a bit off, as long as the value is correct it will oft times go unnoticed.... unless of course it is very garish!  ;)

I suppose Values are one of the strong points of the Grisaille method that Robyn used when she painted Gwenivieve?

I was told it makes no matter what color you use on a face as long as the values are correct. I would say true true true but would you want to see a totally green face! maybe painting "The Hulk" :2funny: but then again if you got the values teatotally correct could you tell it's green. Unless it is very Garish.
