01-28-2014, 09:39 PM
Well, Your 75% provided a 100% good painting, so I guess that Your full recovery will end up with some extraordinary masterpiece. Wish You all the best so as to go on enjoying Your artpieces and humor for many years to come (if I can endure long enough at least:rolleyes:;)).

01-29-2014, 01:54 AM

Feel better, Mr Ploos. A star indeed. I mean the chorus line is all well and good, but sooner or later we want the star to come on.

There must be either a bus strike over there or a flu epidemic. Dear ATPlus, I hope this Katie's wonderful dance-therapy may cause a funny reply from You or anyone taking care of Your recovery ... I wish You to feel much better soon.

Dear Katie, fortunately You didn't post by mistake a dance without veils or a strip-tease or any other After 9 artpiece, otherwise we risk to get a premature reaction by our dear Mr. Ploos'! :eek:;) I presume he's got to rest a little more in view of a smooth full recovery. :o:D

Hey, these last few studies are looking quite good Mr Ploos4.

You got good proportions and of course the expressions on the models are quite readable which gives the viewer an opportunity to establish a rapport with the painting. I think you would do well to look at some of the things you're doing and consider the choices that the artist makes as they interpret and make marks that say exactly what they want to say.

There are formulas to it that one can learn if one stays with a style long enough to explore it. The down side of that is that you don't do other styles too. So it's a choice we make. I always liked exploring styles and techniques I dare say so I had a tendency to be all over the place. But it wasn't until I really zeroed in on one style that I did all the time that I hit higher levels. So many choices are made in the process of painting and drawing that until we place a goodly number into the category where we're not having to think about those mechanical bits and then move on to taking on the finesse bits, the higher level artistic bits, that we really hit the level of mastery.

Trying new stuff is alluring, I can attest. So it's perhaps about having a home base style that you most always do and then deviate from that gradually as a core style. And then hit the occasional foray into an altogether new technique for fun. But go back to the core, until it no longer gives you what you want out of it. But that way you'll get really good.

Speaking of athletic competitions, the SuperBowl this year was a Super Let Down. I mean the lads may have been giving it their all, but there was such a huge difference between the quality of play that day. Lets just say it was not a nail-biting clash of titans.

Back to the pictures, these last number have been really good. Hope you're making it your own to some degree. The way to find out is to try the technique on a different subject than the one's he has already done.

02-09-2014, 08:44 AM
Hoots. Mon. Great to see u. Yes I'm stuck on M. Weistling with the odd. N fetching

02-12-2014, 05:44 AM
. . . You know that she's from Canada right? Well Canada is the "New France", The Statue of liberty speaks french... it all makes sense ;););)

That's funny. I'm sure you have the French Canadian vote. . . beyond which there might be just a little resistance. I'm not political about Canadian anything, but when I was visiting Canada for a few months back in 1974 it was certainly something the French Canadians were keen on. They had managed bi-lingual by then with labeling and so on. But some of my Canadian friends were telling me that in France the French weren't so sure that Canadians were speaking understandable French. I found it all amusing because I spoke no French of any kind and it all sounded the same to me. But I'm American and any of them asked would have labeled me as linguistically hopeless despite my having studied Latin in high school and I knew some Spanish by that time in life.

As to the language the Statue of Liberty spoke, I believe it may have been Latin. From what I was able to gather, she was invented by a Roman who was being held under house arrest pending execution by the Emperor. And he, Boethius, being a great scholarly fellow, was describing a vision, something of an invented goddess, the embodiment of Philosophy in his book The Consolation of Philosophy. And I also seem to recall that book became a staple among the universities. And my guess is that book was used as a primer on Latin for those future men of power in the Middle Ages up through when the Statue of Liberty was built by the French. I suppose since she is who she is, she speaks all languages. But likely not just French.

You have to admit, it's a great sculpture. But my opinion is that at the turn of the century, the French Academicians were the best in the world at realistic sculpture at that time.

Oh, and Mr Ploos4, don't feel singled out being rejected. She's way out of my league as well. :rolleyes:;):D:D

02-12-2014, 09:23 AM
It's an amazing piece of art which is undoubtedly enhanced by its size. About the Canada being the "new France" of course it was a joke related to Avril, no disrespect intended ;)

02-12-2014, 09:29 PM
Very nice, can't even tell them apart...
Being very diplomatic about this, Andrea
got a kick out of it, and I think you did a great job
as well!
Take care,

02-12-2014, 10:01 PM
Ah, dear D Akey, You reminded me of Severinus Boethius, the guy who eventually deserved such a high respect by the Barbarian invaders, later on willing to learn how to rule conquerors and conquered people after the Roman Empire fell (past ones barbarian kings success, like in the case of Laracus or Attila lasted just a short time), that the new dominant class got accustomed to past Empire civilization and people and even started to like them and be willing to become too part of that long history. You're a mine of culture, dear friend, even for us in Italy where decline is progressively chopping the many ancient roots whence our uniqueness and surprising resources come from ...:(

Nothin' to it. I told her she could do with a bit of sun and she indignantly reared up to her full height. . . You can grab this pic and import it and continue, that is, if you had stopped because the proportions were short in the leg department, as you said. I was only guessing how tall she needed to be to get onto the roller coaster down the theme park.

Always suspected the sergeant was a Singer. A one and a two. . . It's a long way to Tipperary. . .

Nice painting. You master his style and you've mastered the best (in my opinion).

Looking good Mr Ploos!

Hi Cap'n Mac I've posted in Andy,s post by mistake. Ok blame my head butting :confused::confused:

Hi Eighty....
Well I'm glad that your Madame X is being well recieved, you won't have to pack your bags and move...Yep! I studied up on John...great story! Paint a portrait for free, the French don't like it, and you got to get out of town. probably the finest unpopular painting John could've painted at the time, got him to London though.....
Still waiting for you to start John's 'Egyptian Girl'. He He!
Great job!
Take care friend,

Yeah, Madame X's definitely got that Jessica Rabbit thing happening. WoOOOoooOOOHHHOOooooOOoooo!!!!!!
In the immortal words of Bob Hoskins: "Boobie trapped"

I will forswear any further digression, if and until I think of more. . . and that Egyptian girl has a real interesting story. Sergeant was accused of being a cad, essentially for putting such an obviously erotic painting into the Salon (or somewhere on exhibit). The thing was that the picture was not provocatively posed. It's all the dirty old men immediately went there and projected their own soaring libidos upon it. She is very appealing however but just standing there. . . innocently. . . posing nude, as they do. . . lithe. . . WoooOOOOooooHhHHHHhhoooOOOOOooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ah, I feel like I'm in a duck blind witnessing the flora and fauna romping merrily though the wedding scene where they're consecrating the land for a blissful harvest. I would think the Romans would approve certainly. And Boucher thought he had a lock on garden romances. . . piffle. He was a piker compared with Mr Ploos.

LOL;) Breakfast would have been completed by an energetic zabaglione (dessert made of whipped egg yolks, sugar, and Marsala wine) for recovery from a Dyonisiac orgiastic party in the forest.

Well, at least we know he's not looking down her blouse, eh? More's the pity. I think she's going to shoot the cheating bloke by pulling out a little derringer. More blood. . . Very fun story.

I'm enjoying these last few. I like the still life effects with the shine and all that on the grapes and so on. A bit airy. . . and no, I don't mean 'hairy'. Could do with filling in the gaps a little so it doesn't become so much about the silhouette shapes of the leaves and so on. The eye goes automatically to the area of most contrast and the edges of the leaves extend all over so it's a little chaotic. Could be handled with some attention to the background, working it with a little more eye to the contrast thinking in terms of shadow and so on. I know you're just copying someone else's painting, but you still have to contend with making yours work as good as you can. It will also help you in many ways to get inside the original artist's head and see what they were thinking. And they're not always right and can be improved upon -- just a comment to free you up.

Go man go.

02-23-2014, 01:37 PM
Hi Cap'n Mac Thanks for. The crits there was I happily gliding along in the sky when U. Gave me

A broad-side and sent me crashing down on to my Barnett wish I could improvise like Madam Katie

Or mighty Caesar. But as U know I'm a novice. In this art game Prehap's in two years time. When

I've gained more experience And can do Layer's ok. So for the time being I beg your. Forgiveness

Ok. Have another Aggiss and think of Bonnie prince Charly ;) ;). :D :D:D:D:D:D. SLAINTE

02-23-2014, 04:16 PM
Need to wipe my goggles clean I reckon. Thought you were Mr Ploos who used to insist on fair critiques because it kept him growing and sharp. The one who would give Caesar what for to stir up the juices. The same fellow who would go out into the back yard and tear out weeds with his teeth and spit 'em out all bundled with bailing wire. I did notice a change in tone some time back. I thought it was a temporary thing and you would be back to your former appetites. But I can adjust my tone to suit.

I'll take comfort in you deriving continued pleasure in your passion for art in whatever form it takes. :-)

02-23-2014, 10:15 PM
Dear ATPlus, there's no great master who cannot be turned effectively into a new and original interpretation by You and, differently from Your last Caravaggio painting, You really don't cheat! Congratulations.

Great painting Eighty, and to think you did it from memory on the ipad. Well done! :cool:

02-27-2014, 11:30 AM
Hi Robbie sorry if I confused you as My memory ain't that Good yeah started from memory on the IPad while in bed thats why her face is only a sliver of Steve's so had to

get up and go into my Workshop ie Lounge and put the Wacom on so I could see her face ok then finished it on the IPad which was a fight as memory was low and the tools

kept changeing so never knew which tool was going pop up next ok regards eighty + ;) :D :D :D :D :D :D SLAINTE

Working with the mouse is a tricky business that takes some getting used to if you're used to the stylus. Interestingly, it also works the other way where if you're used to the mouse, adjusting to the pen and tablet takes some getting used to. I myself use a mouse most often, but the stuff I do isn't art as much as manipulation. But I have a pen and use it for painting and drawing. I just don't do as much art as I would like. So a mouse is sufficient at this point.

But this latest piece still looks pretty nice, Mr Ploos. Hope you get a new pen soon though, since it's your tool of choice.

02-28-2014, 09:04 AM
Pretty good effort for a mouse Eighty! :cool:

So this is the legendary monkey cat. . . or was that a honkey cat?

The question in my mind, what between a bird who has no sphincter and a monkey given to hurling feces -- it's the perfect metaphor for the nature of certain of my relations I had when I was single. A doomed relationship for sure. Everyone else can see it. . .

I think Sir Elton John said it best when he sang like a canary: Get back, honkey cat. . . better get on back to the woods. . .

Well, time to kill the fetid cheese, the prodigal pen has returned!!!!!! I'm overjoyed in Biblical proportions!!!!!!!!!

That's putting it right, my good Mr Ploos. Don't ya love it and hate it all at the same time when it was a small oversight?

So then, now the oversight gets put to good use -- PAINT MAN!!!! (or draw)

Oh, a tip: You don't need to cut the cheese, as hilarious as that can be. It's the crumbly kind. . .

03-01-2014, 05:11 PM
Woo hoo! The Pen is mightier than the sword (or the mouse)!!

I heard Caesar's a razzle rather than a dazzle. But then my Latin's a little rusty.

Mr Ploos, yer a hoot and a hollar. But you sure do know how to make over the statue of liberty. I particularly love the twinkle off her smile. You could have a career in Hollywood with that kind of talent for special facial effects.

Looks great. When I'm poor, tired and a huddled mess, I would follow the sign and give it to her if she looked this good.

So yer gonna put Ms Coops in a bikini, is it? In this wet winter weather? You tryin' ta convert her to yer blue pagan ways? Wonder if that's why BraveHeart and the clan painted themselves blue -- not all fired sure they needed to use paint at all, with so little garmentry in winter.

Nice paintings Mr Ploos.

You'd make a pretty poor buccaneer cause apparently ye ain't got no missin' mast on yer vessel. Ain't at all missin'. In point of fact I believe it's front and center. Though it looks as if your sail's furled. The "Jewish on your wife's side" has me puzzled though with your sails trimmed thus. . . or not.

Listen, I'd call it a wash. Perhaps you should take up whaling instead. Captain Ahab and the white whale have got nothing on you. And you've got nothing on neither.

03-04-2014, 09:07 PM
Dear ATPlus, You started to have parties with Pino and her nice ladies, I see. What a wonderful art path for You metaphorically anticipating upcoming springtime! Everywhere' blossoming, Pino's girls half-undressed are showing their charms and I think :confused: I should perhaps modify a little the stick on Your bronze statue ... ;):oLOL:)
