Re: Heads

These are excellent, Matthew. However, did you intend to give 2948 that slightly bugeyed look, especially his right eye, or did you simply run out of time? A datapoint: It is widely accepted among motivational psychologists that meetings should not go on for more than 50m without a break, that long ...

Re: Name of the Artist

Found her! The artist's name is Anne Vallotton. I wasn't sure about copyrights so I am posting a link where you can see a fair bit of her work. They say she is the most published artist in the world. https://www.pinterest.com.au/jlwmccallum/good-news-bible-illustrations/ Thanks, Harry. Vallotton ha...

Re: Name of the Artist

That sounds interesting, Harry. When you find her work, if it's copyright-free, post something here, otherwise a link so we can share your amazement.

Re: Name of the Artist

The simple 'fish' design of 2 curved lines which we associate with Christianity was an image of this artist I believe. He may have turned the design into a modern illumination theme, or simplified it somehow, but the design wasn't original with him. It came down to us from the Roman catacombs two m...

Congratulations, Matthew. The frame and the border are just right, judicious, sober, apt. Good luck.

Re: Gunter Königsmann's Sketches

I like the economy of the marks indicating the roundness and the perspective of the branch reaching out to the viewer.

Re: GOT S08E01

Excellent work. I was just thinking of his eyes on the dragon over her shoulder as a test of a portraitist's skill... Yes. If you can draw that, I would love to see a sketch of that scene. At the moment I'm shopping the net for long chisels for a lathe I acquired to do woodwork, and I have drawings...

Re: Fudepen tip lifetime

Let us know your conclusions when you have more experience with the Kamei, I'm keen to know if it is more durable than the Platinum. The Kamei is not intended to be used uncapped.

Re: Unitarian Universalist Parish, Monson

This is super, Matthew. The warmer values nearer the viewer, with the spot of red-orange in the mid-ground, are particularly good for locating the eye and bring it back forward again, so to speak. It's a little town we all know.

Re: Off to Snow Camp!

Dr Livingstone, I presume... Man, you're keen! That first painting could pass as complete already; I'd be keen to see what you can do to improve it.

Re: Pen for Sketching

All the same, I wouldn't run around buying up old Sheaffers with the inlaid nib in the hope that one would be flexible. I remember as a student having a PFM III with a nib so stiff I played darts with it. Here's a PFM III (that's Sheaffer's Pen For Men III, they all had the same handmade and tuned n...

Re: A frivolous point, perhaps

Another point (that also doesn't mean that any other point isn't valid, but that might show another aspect of the problem): I personally like the sketches Van Gogh sent to his brother in order to tell him what paintings he was working on more than the actual paintings. You could now argue that Van ...
