Re: Just a Thought

I think the dictionary best defines illustration as "that which illustrates" so I would say yes fine art could also be illustration. 2. "A print, drawing or picture of any kind inserted in written or printed text to elucidate or adorn it." So if an image is added to text to illuminate text or an impression of an idea or written image that would be an illustration. A book or magazine cover image would likely elude to what the inner contents might be.

Re: Just a Thought

Great painting! I like the color and composition! Is that you in the chair?
I also like Acrylic and pastels, pastels are new to me, I'm having fun trying all combinations of things. Agree with your philosophy of art and illustration.

Re: Just a Thought

I like your painting. I wish I was on that beach! We have snow here!

I have not posted in this area of WC before (that I remember). I dont have an educated opinion of the fine art/illustration debate...but I have enjoyed looking at art my whole life & I like what I like, regardless of category.
