What if...

I was daydreaming today about what it would be like to have one day to paint with any artist from history, who would it be?

If you had one day to take one historical artist somewhere near your home to paint, who would it be? Where would you take them? What would you ask them? What do you think they would ask you? Knowing what you do about acrylics & more modern materials (e.g. acrylics, mediums, etc.), what do you think you'd share with them and how do you think they'd like it?

Guess mine would be Monet. Probably take him to Woodward Park, a lovely naturalized setting. I'd ask him how he planned for a painting and what did he think was his key strategy for capturing light and ambience. Sorry, I have no idea what he'd ask me. I'd probably share glazing mediums with him as it offers the opportunity to create luminous layered colors and allows for such spontaneity. I think he'd like acrylics very much being such an art pioneer.

What about you?

I would seek out Diego Rivera and squeeze him for every bit of mural knowledge he has.

Mary Casset or Monet. Or both? I don't know what we'd discuss, but I would love the opportunity to paint with either of them. I would love to see Casset paint the beautiful skin tones that she did. I 'd love to paint the atmosphere of a landscape like Monet could.

Re: What if...

Carravaggio or Rembrandt because they work magic with dramatic light and darkness. Delacroix because of his movements and colours, and Van Gogh for the same reason.

Re: What if...

Howard, I didn't know much about Piero della Francesca, but quickly searching the internet, I found his "The Flagellation" to have a remarkably modern feel to the composition despite being from the 15th Century. Magritte .. very cool indeed.

This is good...helps me get to know you better and all the wonderful artists history has given us.

Monet-I'd be so in awe I'd just sit and watch him paint.

Re: What if...

Leonardo Da Vinci

To ask him if it's a man or a woman.

James

P.S. If you are an artist you shouldn't have to ask.

Carravaggio but he was totally looney so I am not sure I would want him for the afternoon.

I just read that Degas was Cassatt's mentor. (I spelled her name wrong in my first post... )

Re: What if...

Carl Spitzweg and Michelangelo.

Oh and Vermeer and I would ask him who the girl with the pearl earring was. Monet would be nice too.
