Isn't that interesting timing. Just last night I watched "The Life of Pi". Since it's a fictional movie I won't go into details but it has much to do with surviving in a life boat in the Pacific. And here you posted this picture of McAuley who I had never heard of. I just now looked him up. They were put up something like 3 years ago. And now most of his stuff on YouTube has been taken down. Caught a bit of it on Vimeo. Didn't have his final tape available they said to have recovered. So instead I got The Life of Pi (which has nothing to do with Pai the painter who hung out her for a few years.)

Paintings, especially the blond in the mirror are looking good. Never pegged you for a Romance Novel fan, eeeyy by gum, lad. But Pino was a hellova painter. Good one to study. Nice expression on her.

Edit: Seems YouTube is acting up so the videos have maybe not been taken down. Maybe they're doing roadwork, filling digital pot holes or something.

03-05-2014, 07:39 AM
Hi Geoff Great new. My regards. To your better half

Hi. Cap'n. Mac. Ho. Ho. Ho. Just liked. Those Digital's pot Holes as I'm always falling into them

Nice stuff Mr Ploos. Very interesting how you have such a comparative economy of paint. It sort of seems to be defining your style and so many artists take years and years to find theirs. Also, you're finessing a lot more defining components in the pictures now, meaning you can hit on a lot more points as you know what to look for and how to get it more and more. The bits you're painting look like the people. This Spanish lass in the face is crackin' good. Go man go.

That Old Mill is looking very good:D

D Akey
03-09-2014, 04:30 AM
Some really nice details in the drawing of the old mill -- an especially fun and well-drawn detail is the ducks in the lower right and the woman is telling as well. Overall, the color is misty and vaporous like a fog or a vision in the imagination, especially when seeing how it comes into form through your sequence of works in progress -- a slower, intriguing type of impressionism. The line work is like a line holding the ship inclined to drift with the tides to a dock -- it holds the vision in place and gives it a clarity of intention. A very interesting, almost dreamlike style, Mr Ploos.

Hi Andy Thanks For Showing us your New Pen looks good is that what's showing blue the clipper's and a little brush for cleaning the Nib ??? and 9 s/nib's
Sorry for the late reply Dear E+, first of all congrats for the latest paintings, the watermill is just great :cool: Thanks, the blue thingy is just a colored plastic ring that can be used to replace the stock one (it's just cosmetic ^^). As far as the tablet buttons I actually do use them, the one I use the most allows me to change the brush size simply by holding it and swiping the pen right (increase size) or left (decrease size): the button is set to "shift" while the upper pen button is set to "right click" and the lower lower to "alt", then I have "undo", "redo", "ctrl". KIA ORA!

03-09-2014, 09:39 AM

Nice colors in this last one. Very loud and energetic, as I assume is this lass you've painted. I would expect to see colors like this local to my neck of the woods at one point, at least in a music video being made. Definitely eye catching.

Salmon or orange and turquoise are coastal colors. I think this lass much be a Miami Dolphins supporter. (the opposite coast in Florida because of the orange groves and sea I assume).

I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see her on roller skates in a bikini on the paved walkway against the sand. But with those lovely peaches n' cream colors, I would suspect sunscreen more than tanning lotion. But certainly she would be one in a pin-up by one of the greats like Elvgren.

Very nice rendition -- almost like a musical painting.

Wow. The dark complected lady is another type and you did a great job on her. The next one, the blond, looks as if she stuck her head up looking for her the picture frame to which she was assigned.

No wonder she's under color. It's as if her ship had sailed and left her and she's listening to the gulls and steamers thinking, "Cor blimey, that sunk it. Another black mark for me, innit. . . lost me colours. . ."

03-10-2014, 08:52 PM
Hi. Cap'n. Mac. Yeah U Sussed her out. As it was a Try at a abstract but she poked her.

Meanwhile, back at the wedding reception on the lawn at the manor:

Groom: "And my first groomly command to my wif shall go thus: Good Madame, putteth thine right foot in, and thy left foot out. . .putteth thy left leg up, and ye shake it all about. . . Let thee do yon hokey pokey then shall ye turneth thyself around. That's what it's all about. . .yet, verily and yea, I digress. . . "

<Aw bleedin' hell. . . flubbed me lines again. Who writes this rubbish? Bad bard! Bad! Down boy!!!!!>

Mr Ploos, they say a picture is worth 1000 words. . .but they never said which 1000. This one seems beyond hoakey. It's down right hoakey pokey. You should put your stylus in and ye shake it all about. . . repeat as needed. Your painting amuses me and I admire your skill. You can sure tell a dirty joke in paint, laddie. A great talent to rival the great almighty Caesar, daub for daub.

By the way, the picture above that, the cavalier dude is a bang up drawing. Really phenomenal. You're right closing in on our good master Rembrandt.

And you're asking if me cock crows at dawn? I find that a rather personal question, lad. Boot in point of fact, it never shuts oop.
And there was never a blade taken to it boot once, oh aye. . . at I such a time I think they spiked me bottle, cause I can't remember a thing. Wait. What. . . who. . . what are we talking about again?

Oh, aayyuuuh. . . I see. You're inquiring about me neighbor's rooster what used to wake me up at 3 in the blooming morning. Yeah, he just sort of shut up one night and that was that. I think a coyote got him. The hit I put out on him cost me dear, but was worth it in the long run.

Nice expressionistic colors and look, Mr Ploos. Getting that rather turn of the last century style going. Feels a little Cezanne-esque. Bravo-esque.

And the pre-nosh-esque one is as if a shadow play, which setting dark and light patterns is. Super job as well.

Good job!

Hi. Robbie. Thanks. I'm really chuffed. As I grimly stuck with the oil brush I did pick this one out.
As a challenge from J.S.S work to force myself. As have be come addicted to the Airbrush which
Seems to do more or less everything ok
Hi. Cap'n Mac. Yeah. But I'm not a Fan of. Cezane work. On that last one as U described as
Shadows. I might leave as is as I quiet it But think I try to duplicate it then add colour as its in
Venice not Brighton
Hi. Steve. Thanks. I'm not sure which period of his life I'm in. As just go to the master in the Sky Google and he never. Tell's. Me. Ok ... ;);). :D :D :D :D :D :D. ...to all. Kia. Ora. Slainte. Statte BBUONE Si. Si.

Cor blimey, looks like the lads waiting for day work down the union hall. . . Nicely detailed Mr Ploos. Have some cornflakes on me, lad. . . then grab yer stylus and get to work. You'll have some doing to top this one. Degas and Manet and the whole lot loved their interiors too. Probably warmer to paint there in the winter months. Very practical.

I DOOOO!!!!! Like this one with the ships. . . or boats or whatever is the politically correct term for them floaty thingies with mastadons and lines.

Nice free flowing style. I like the sweeping arcs of the hulls contrasting the linear shapes of the masts and all the straight stuff. It's a really interesting balance of compositional elements. Well painted Mr Ploos the Nautical.

Best toss me a herring as I applaud like a seal. Go man go!!!!!!

Hi Robbie thanks what did U think of Hogarth's Dog ??

Hi Pai Thanks Please U liked

Hi Andy Thanks yeah They would have Weeding their Garden !!

A Question Did Hogarth do a Self-Portait then Bunged his Dog in afterwards ???


03-28-2014, 11:44 AM
Terrific paintings Mr Ploos and losing your name doesn't seem to have hurt your paintings at all :D

Now there's a bonnie bonnet and brilliant boxer. I think the dog's a little embarrassed by his eccentric master's wearing his formal shower cap to the hunt. It's just not done in the heelands. And the pup knows it. And he knows everybody else does as well. So what's the writing in the lower left say? Is it Check the mirror before leaving the house?

Hi Cap'n Mac Sorry in my excitment at getting out of the Corner :confused: Yes I did leave the chewing gum back under the window Sill

As for Hogarth that's his Favourite Painting Bonnet and the Hound was worth a small Fortune to Him plus He was bit of a wit if U look at his work ;):D:D:D:D KIA ORA

03-29-2014, 01:03 AM
Well well dear Eighty what a naughty boy you have been whilst I have been away but happy to see you back with your original name. Lots and lots of great paintings here dear friend. Stay fit and well and out of trouble:)

03-29-2014, 02:40 AM
Got lost? C'mon, probably it's just an excuse like Your past head bumping to move some nice lady to take You home and take care .... LOL:o;) You don't tell it right, dear mate. I collected evidence herebelow of what really happened to You (Eighty and eighteen). LOL:o

Wonderful last painting although I agree the dog has some paw pathology. Here everything's fine after President Obama visiting us and leaving our traffic flow and jam again natural and undisturbed (apart from itself) in a sunny day. Il looks like he enjoyed the place and the food and was just disappointed to know, getting into the Coliseum, that he was a couple of millennia late for the last show and that no baseball match was envisaged in yesterday program ... ;)
