View Full Version : Week 54 Classical Art Journey

Hi & Welcome to week 54 of classical art journey!

What is this you ask?

The journey is still the same as last year.

Just find an artist or style (((our own art too)))
you have an interests in and work it,
classical, traditional, impressionistic, realistic, romantic
in your chosen media and try to do something each week.
Then we share like before.
Please if you can introduce the artists you've studied to the group.
Or something about the art you have chosen to study this week.

Think of this as a working lab, try to learn from the past
to see our future.

That is why we also still have to think about our own
artistic vision. We want to strengthen it and
pull it to the fore front of our art too.

Some of you may know my computer crashed and burned.
So I am in the mist of a crises trying to get back to speed.
Since all of my programs are older, I am having a bit of a
challenge. No camera program, no computer, this one is borrowed,
no files, etc............Well I did kind of want to start fresh for the
New Year. Little did I know.:p Ha ha. It's ok, I'll be fine soon.

Until then a little field trip. Since we are doing baroque period
for Tyree's challenge, a little link to a past MOM in the Oil Forum.


Caravaggio's Baccus


Hope everyone has a great week. Make art!
Sincerely Nickel

Hi Nickel and everybody,

I just cannot get in a baroque mood for the monthly challenge for some reason - my effort for the week is practically anti-baroque. A cute fuzzy little fox after an illustration in a kids book titled "The Brave Little Fox".

Hope everyone is having a good week - sorry about your computer problems Nickel - hope it all falls together.

Hi yah strangers, remember me, the computerless and cameraless guide. :eek:
After shopping repair people, :rolleyes: I can't weight the price of fixing verses a new system. If I had my little joke file, I show you the devil on one of my shoulders and an angel on the other. I don't know which one will win.
It is funny though, every time one of these tech people tell me I will have to wait either for this comp to be repaired, or if I decide that I want the new Vista os, they look at me to see if I am going to explode, literally, because,
I have to wait.

:evil: Lol, I laugh to myself, I am an oil painter, I am use to waiting. :) It's just been the funniest thing to me, everybody else is blowing up, what, wait, I had to have it yesterday.:p anyway, that's my funny haha.

Granby, that's a cute fox!
Susan I like your fruit, I don't see it floating.
Hi Azulparsnip, it's a catastrophe, lol, only if I don't have paint or a brush. :D

I've spent more time organizing my desk. I'll be in big trouble if I ever find the top of it. :D
