favorite artists

Hi there,

Adolph Menzel
Holbein the younger
Degas

All three thought that good drawing abilities are essential to painting. If you have the chance to get a Book with Menzel -drawings, get it...

Have a nice Day

It's not so hard to choose just three:
Renoir, Rembrandt, Repin.
They all begin with "R"
Maybe it's an eclectic mix but I find a lot of interesting in them all.

The reason for three is well, if the question asked for my 10 favorite artists it would be Van Gogh ten times all the way.
