fine art general
Would you mix linseed oil with your turps?
Whom else here likes 16/17th century European Genre scenes?
>>355355No. I like my turp like I like my alcohol: pure, simple, and easy to get high off.
>>355305There really isn't a proper art board here./ic/ is basically just a manga illustration board...Any fine art or abstract art thread gets sent to the bottom straight away because it's not manga illustration
>tfw you will never have the patience, attention span or dedication it takes to become a fine artistAt least I'm decent at Photoshopping a bunch of shit together
>>355422>tfw you will never have the patience, attention span or dedication it takes to become a graphic designer>tfw no ctrl+zAt least I'm decent at throwing paint on canvas.
>>355565Go the fuck awayWhy you even here
>>355643The long answer? I've been trying to shift from traditional to digital mainly due to a lack of space to paint. Then...somehow I ended up here (I think I was looking for photoshop torrents?). And then I hung around a bit and found it pretty comfy. I started reading the logo critiques and looking at web design threads. Seeing the theories you'd previously learnt applied in a very different setting was genuinely interesting. I ended up procrastinating on that photoshop download and went to learn Blender instead, but I still visit /gd/ because I like reading the content on the board. There's always something that makes me smile whenever I visit. (Also Kerning is cute.)

>>355643No not be so horrible it is unpleasant.
do we have any discord server?
>>355388I do not know this painting yet I'd hazard a guess the scene is circa 19th or even early 20th century.
>>355388this came to mind
>>356902Holy fuck, this is good content. Thanks, anon.
I think it's a good idea to have fine art on graphic design board as well. Just my opinion, though.>>355406As far as /ic/, I don't see too many manga posts on it. Maybe it depends on the day of the week.>>355565Did you paint that pepe?>>355651Did you ever try gimp or inkscape? krita?>pic"unusual map" from public domain reviewthought it appropriate for the age of alternate facts
>>357933>Did you paint that pepe?Nah, oil paints are expensive, I wouldn't waste it like that. Pic related is what I did paint (no bully), but since I lost the space I had, it's going to be a WIP for another 10 years or something. I'm really hoping to finish it before I die, at least. >Did you ever try gimp or inkscape? krita?I've tried gimp, but boy is the learning curve steep. I haven't tried inkscape and krita. I've mainly been playing around with corel painter essentials, since that came with the wacom I got, but nothing beats the feeling of painting traditionally.
>>358771Look at this absolute fucking madman
Also while I'm here, bring back bustles and bonnets in modern fashion, you cowards
>>358774Very nicely painted, brush strokes look beautiful, I love the pink figure. It'd be great to watch at different times of day. Crude but tactile.
>>358772>paying a man for their work.
>>356296Grimshaw's cityscapes can be very unsatisfying, they're a façade.
>>357993That's cool. Thanks for sharing wip. Hopefully you get to finish some day. >>360390one of my favorites
>>359913Elaborate? I've always appreciated the sense of melancholy they evoked.
>>360390life imitates art
>>360413I've seen one in a museum. The particular one I viewed, as soon as I came close to it the illusion evaporated. It's like a model toy town , which is fair enough. There were bits of architecture he'd missed out, perhaps he didn't even notice himself. Also, the lighting is obviously an invention, it is more like little 5w light bulbs on a Barbie house than the gas light from the pamphlet shop. Still, a delight.
>>356893Do you have a torrent?
>>360575Huh, thanks for sharing anon. I guess some things really only become clear when you see the work for yourself.
Dexter Dalwood - Old Bailey>Typically, Dalwood’s works depict imagined and constructed interiors or landscapes (usually devoid of figures) that act as memorials or descriptions of particular places, moments or people. They draw on an idea of ‘history painting’ as a genre and, like their antecedents, the quotations, allusions and references can be elusive and highly codified. Referencing and juxtaposing image and content, Dalwood weaves together personal, social and political histories with art history, popular culture and biography to produce new meanings.

>"Nydia, the Blind Flower Girl of Pompeii" was the most popular American sculpture of the nineteenth century. According to Rogers, it was replicated 167 times in two sizes. The subject was drawn from "The Last Days of Pompeii" (1834), a widely read novel by Lord Edward Bulwer-Lytton, which ends with the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in a.d. 79. Rogers’s evocative portrayal of Nydia highlights her heroic attempt to lead two companions out of the burning, ash-covered city. Her closed eyes and staff allude to her blindness, while the hand raised to her ear refers to her acute sense of hearing. The destruction of Pompeii is symbolized by the broken Corinthian capital beside her right foot.
>>362222Forgot to add: the quality is absolute shite, but I like this painting, so I'm posting it anyway
Something a bit more modern to end this dump
>>358772who is this artist jesus h christ thats some detail
>>362568see the filename >>358771
/wg/ is hosting some fine art threads right now>>>/wg/7378678>>>/wg/7381430>>>/wg/7382704
>>362223Wow it looks really horrible.
>>363251The work of the artist may have been fantastic, unfortunately, it has been severely masked by the skill of the photographer.
>The gallery's description beneath the chip off the peak says: "Departing from the tradition of land art in making often major modifications to the natural landscape, The Intruder presents an inch of stone carefully removed from the English countryside. At a glance it is seemingly insignificant and yet the material is carefully presented. Scaling the 3,028ft Scafell Pike in the Lake District, the artist has taken the uppermost inch of the highest mountain in England."Apparently the English weren't too happy about this.
>>355310I love the 90s.

>>364085Good lord. What's the context?
The Embroidered Computer is an exploration into using historic gold embroidery materials and knowledge to craft a programmable 8 bit computer.Solely built from a variety of metal threads, magnetic, glass and metal beads, and being inspired by traditional crafting routines and patterns, the piece questions the appearance of current digital and electronic technologies surrounding us, as well as our interaction with them.Technically, the piece consists of (textile) relays, similar to early computers before the invention of semiconductors. Visually, the gold materials, here used for their conductive properties, arranged into specific patterns to fulfill electronic functions, dominate the work. Traditionally purely decorative, their pattern here defines they function. They lay bare core digital routines usually hidden in black boxes. Users are invited to interact with the piece in programming the textile to compute for them.
>For Untitled (Perfect Lovers) (1991), [Gonzalez-Torres] synchronized two industrial clocks placed side by side. Inevitably, because batteries fail and things tend toward entropy, the clocks would slowly begin to advance at differing rates, out of sync, having moved, however briefly, perfectly together.
>>356111I've been looking for this painting, or at least it's been on my mind. Thanks
>>366565I bet you didn't even notice the change.
