Although you can put a foot wrong here and there I am impressed with these studies Dave you are seeing better which I believe is the point of studying naked people.

Nothing dark about the book of Kells.

If Petrarch is to believed there was darkness between the fall of Rome and the Renaissance!
Certainly a dark period at the moment with my lack of abstraction.

Dave, Petrarch is not to be believed although to be fair to him I believe he was referring mainly to the decline of Roman literature, a nostalgia for the Roman past. The middle ages saw the rise of Christianity and with it the idea of charity, hospitals and Universities. Agriculture improved and Charlemagne organized and improved writing which enabled people to read better.

The design elements are all abstract turn your work into designs but first you must overcome your laziness.

Re: The Dark Age of Abstraction.

You’re right not to believe Petrarch, a lot of derogatory terms comes from the Renaissance writers, take for example Gothic Art which of cause had nothing to do with the Goths and was just a contemptuous term for Northen Art prior to the renascence. Raphael and Vasari have a lot to answer to.

Yes the problem with abstraction is to design and arranging symbols that represent personal ideas and feelings into something vital and complete and individual to the maker of the art, defiantly not a job for a lazy man!

Dave.

Don’t be influenced by Bill he just doesn’t want to eat cabbage Donna, they are not fabulous just rather insipid monstrosities of drawing.
