Your grat master inspired paintings and the ones out of You mind are converging and getting, more and more, the original offsprings of Your personality and unique style. Very good!

01-11-2012, 11:42 PM
Hail O Caesar O Mighty One :D:D:D Found the name of artist I was looking

For. Emile gruppe. Have a look. Ok

01-12-2012, 12:26 AM
Love the last one dear Eighty, reminds me of an advertising board maybe for happiness as he looks a jolly fellow.:)

01-12-2012, 01:55 AM
Thank You, dear ATPlus! Emil Gruppe was certainly a good professianl painter, very much in line with historical American art school teaching, taste and representation conventions and I find enjoyable and quiet to look at. He certainly has also similarities with Your style, You're right, so I'm not to surprised You like hime very much and may be one of the references for You to go on evolving Your approach. If I may suggets another one I don't see too much fra from Your style and, hopefully, Your taste, have a look on google image to the paintings of Gustave Moreau and let me know if You found anything interesting there.

01-12-2012, 05:25 AM
Hail O Caesar O Mighty One G / M no was like stepping backwards into
The world of biblical paintings not my cup of tea. Those days are long gone
When the local rich man was tied to the church as now the world is his oyster and the roles have been reversed and the stock Market is our god and ruler

01-13-2012, 07:15 AM
Geez. . . turn me back for a second, and look at the state of this thread! Smash ups all over the place, more that the expressways in fog. . . (er, deflect on that)

Love these. I laughed, I cried. . .
well ya know I dropped down on my knees <dropped down on my knees> and I began to pray. . . cause I seem to be in California dreamin' your dreams Mr Ploos :D

You are coming up with some remarkable images. . . like you're a cover band performing the hits. Best order me up a couple tankards o' moon rivers with all these ladies you've been paining. All kinds of personalities in there. I love the hotity toity couture one at the end there with her little serving chap. I think he used to work as a lawn jockey in front of a mansion in Georgia, you know, those little statues of a fellow holding out a ring to which you can hitch your horse. At least they worked. Now all they got on the front lawns are no-account ceramic gremlins and plastic pink flamingos. And ya wonder about the state of the economy. . . but I digress. . . Yeah. Had a couple moon rivers on the way here.

Nice work, Mr Ploos! Enjoyed it quite.

01-13-2012, 11:01 AM
hi hey M'akey hoots mon those moon rivers will make yuh hair drop out

but then I digress :D:D:D yeah been smashing the paint for pratice

begin to feel a bit better now all I gotta do now is find out how to use

the rest of the tools :D:D:D anyway glad u enjoyed yourself regards AT+

01-13-2012, 01:35 PM
bus sketch smashed some paint on ok:D:D:D

01-13-2012, 10:07 PM
You're a restless drawer and painter, dear mate, and a quite eclctic one, although Your style and originality is always quite recognizable! Ver y good further additions.
To contribute modestly within this artistic thread and line I would add the following quick sketch I did portraying VanityX " la Eighty Plus in his Bus made with a Mouse" .... :D

01-13-2012, 11:11 PM
Hail O Caesar O Mighty One. ......Jeeze man my mouse has never

Reached those artist levels never sure were he is likes to hide between

The screens drives me mad but he says it's all in good fun thinking of

Sending for retraining that will shake him up the big head. Yeah


01-13-2012, 11:14 PM

01-14-2012, 09:19 AM
What this all appears to me like, Mr Ploos, is that you're not human at all. . . you ARE THE BUS! And we're all taking the 80+ line. These are all your passengers, and a right collection they are as well -- a veritable slice of life filled with characters and artists. They get on the bus, but by the time they've reached their destination, they have become Ploosed. And those what have their own transport are non-ploosed at missin oot.

Tell me, do ye serve 'aggis on the trip, passed oot by gorgeous attendants right oot of a Toulouse Le Star Trek? Boot aye digress. . .

I really like how you sort of 'get behind the wheel' and drive these different artists, like Hockney and so forth. It really shows the influence when you do it. And yet they all, as Caesar said, have your vision to them.

Very celebratory. Not sure if it's the Magic Bus or the Magic Ploos. Note to self: queue The Who. (Hope you can get this in the UK. The room's filled with some of your models.)


01-14-2012, 10:06 AM
hey u old Scottish Haggis basher they say its good to laugh, but you've

made me do that , my humble Thanks from Bus No 84+

hi they just called me to look at the site i said why me?? , well your surposed to be an artist so thought its best as there is a bloke got into
the site who's been drinking a lot of moon rivers keep's shouting where's
my cashe of haggis ock i nae git on this bus naemor that thiefing groundhog
they say u know him yeah its ok he has these turns now and again but we're
used it, he asked me the other day me being half a Scot that now Scotland
is going to be independent which half will I become I said I Don't know as if all the half Scots returned Scotland would sink beneath the sea with the sheer
wieght of them :D:D:D:D:D:D:D----E/S

D Akey
01-14-2012, 12:58 PM
I believe you 'ave that wee lass walking oop the ol' Argh aisle, laddie. Careful lest ye get hitched, and send yer into connuptual fits, oh aye. Careful where ye be puddin' yer Yorkshire. . . best stick wif yer 'aggis.

I believe, and correct me if I'm wrong, but since Scotland is in the north, that half would be at the 'ead. So that bein' the case like, the sad truth is ye can no moor be wearin' yer kilts, as that lower half of ye is all English, and ye needs ta have a suit Lord n' Tailored for ye, as befits yer birth, right?

Am I makin' meself clear, boyo?

Course, if yer other 'alf is Irish, well, me hat's off to ye, lad. And ye kin wear what ya please.

01-17-2012, 09:35 AM
Ach lad. . . so did ye do some caber tossin'? Or that stout lad just generally 'appy ta see whatever paintin' 'es a-lookin at?

I think there may be a slight misnomer tho, when you do work that's a take off on somebody, it mostly means their artistic style, noot takin off o' their kilts. I mean they could get 'em hung as a spy for noot wearin' their uniform, neh? And I'm noot all fired shoore it would be a good 'angin.

Nice selection of sketches. I really like the directness of that Jack Palance portrait. He looks to be a Van Gogh type.

01-17-2012, 09:49 AM
Thanks Ken nice to think your still looking :cool::cool::cool:

Just how the flock o' seagulls did you find a picture of me to paint, Mr Ploos? I could well ha'e been that lad wif the easel on tha beach. Yer freakin me oot laddie.

Nice work all around. I really like how you do your landscapes like sketchy portraits. You go right for the heart of the image and make it yer own interpretation. Well done. The colored houses are really cool!

Question on the sketches: Do you no see the same faces on the bus line you frequent? Have you done any of them more than once?

Go Plus Go!!!! :):):):):)

01-19-2012, 02:25 AM

Right. You weave a complex tale of our collective past: Back in the cave dewllin' days, the ooter space Chariots of the Gods comes to Deadwood at High Noon an' pulls a snake on the sheriff, while Tonto, all liquored up, pulls 'is sharp nose on somebody at the bar and says, "How, laddie! That'll be 50 buck skins. . ."

Am I right? I love pictograms. . . boot ai'm a wee bit roostay wif the translatin' word fer word.

Lookin' grrreat, mon. I must say that howlin' becomes a chore with the virus for any right Basker 'ound. . . All flemmish and ad hoc <spitooi>. . .

The range of styles is still really good. I like it best when you go straight to the heart of it as you did in the color portraits. Still all kinds of personality comes through in all of them.

01-22-2012, 11:47 AM
Hi Mac did u see youe fizz-og :D:D:D

see what u think of this one tried to do it in water colour got in a hellof

a state but will keep trying :eek::eek::eek::D:D:D

D Akey
01-22-2012, 11:58 AM
Actually I quite like it. One of your many styles. It reminds me a little of a cross between Wayne Thiebaud in his Pop phase and David Hockney in whatever phase it was when he did this kind of thing. Has an early 70s feel, which is very cool as a way to paint a figure. It's sort of with one foot in realism and the other in using the natural figure breaks to create pools for brushwork.

I really like it. But I especially like how you have used the blue of the background to influence the color mixing. Kind of keyed to harmonize in a Pop-Jazz sort of way. A device to find an additional component of unity which related everything while it is stepping away from realism.

Re: the first part of your last comment, 'friad it went oover me 'head. What ye mean then, lad?

01-22-2012, 02:04 PM
hi Mac another quickie . that was because I had done one of

your Avatar the wild one :eek::eek::eek: was going to put a tam o shanter

on your nut but there was too much hair :D:D:D:D:D:D:D----E/S

Your thread is always a new discovery;)

D Akey
01-22-2012, 11:17 PM
So would ye be meanin' this one? Sorry, must ha'e missed it. . . or though I was lookin' in tha mirror and took no particular notice as the face was so familiar and distinguished lookin', oh aye. I figured all was right with tha world, adjusted me cravat and moved on.

You're puttin' a fine gallery o' rogues together, what come from the hills like as not. You have a keen editorial eye, and that's a fact. Could see yourself in a couple hangin' on the wall, only difference depending if your whiskers were in full or no.

Good on ya Jimmay!

01-22-2012, 11:48 PM

Eighty+ you're killing me - you're so so prolific and I'm trying to keep up with all your sketches and paintings but as I'm not yet 80+ and thus am forced to go to work rather than spending my time painting and looking at your paintings I'm not able to comment as often as I'd like to :(

so lemme just say that I enjoy watching this thread even if I'm not commenting every time I look! :)

Love how you have finished of the last painting dear Eighty. It is very much like Hockney's paintings. I have a DVD of him painting out in all weathers in the Yorkshire countryside. Never much cared for him until I saw this DVD, it shows his great yorkshire humour which you either get or you dont. Anyway love what you are doing and always look forward to seeing more works in your thread:)

Also your day at the park one is actually like unto a very accomplished Hockney, Puck. . . right into the net.

she had her way ok :eek: :eek: :confused: :( :( :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

01-26-2012, 01:49 PM
your sketches are amazing. love the first painting on this page and agree with Katie you have got that Hockney thing going on there. really like it. glad to see you diving into color after all your foundational sketch work in black in white your soul must have cried out for color.
now one suggestion, in the Venus de Milo picture, I assume the cat is also from Milo, therefore I think you should show the cat de Milo also has lost its arms. :) I liked Dumbo too.
I have no idea where GZ is. Hope it was sunnier there than it was here today. :) The human portrait sketches are fantastic as always.
I tried to approach scan00073 at a train station to declare her beauty and depth of character, but she slapped me. Apparently her name is not Scan after all. oh well.

01-26-2012, 06:12 PM
What a talent Mr eighty + .. You definitely have it. Don't stop, just keep on going like the battery rabbit..commercial :)

You're doon every bit of alright with them oily colors, lad. You're startin' oot with making it simple. And still it's lookin' full and descriptive like.

At this point, I will also make a recommendation t' expand yer range a wee bit by tryin' to use other colors for your line instead of only black and save yer darkest bits for the naturally occurring dark places, like yer beard :D. You can do the same thing, only try different colors and see what happens.

Nothin' wrong with what you're doing presently. It rocks. Boot, ye could creep up on a tonal paintin' that a-way, Mr. D. Crocket. We do need to get ye a raccoon pelt ta cover the pate like any proper explorer type, as ye are, laddie. We'll also have to get ye a guitar, and I think you'll be a sensation in the manner of Ricky Nelson. You can be come the Buskin' Ploos on the Brighton Boos, neh?

Carry On Paintin', oh aye. We'll add that to the litany o' Cary On movies.

All in the Ploos column. . . all to the good and mirthful. Great joy in it all.

Looking good Mr. Ploos. I think that in your using different colors in your line for your paintings that you will then at some point be able to integrate those as paint strokes as you are creating edges to forms within your subject. That means you can vary the weight of the line a lot, and/or you can use it as the starting point for the local color of the (face or hair or what have you) and paint inward.

I understand it must feel right now like you're a juggler keeping a couple bean bags in the air. Ultimately we will have you juggling all sorts of household objects, chainsaws, commemorative plates with the queen's face on it, cats, you name it. . . and all at once.

That means once you get to seeing an edge not so much as a trap line (tech term for an outline in typography within which there is color), you will begin to experience the joys of volume and tone.

But you done great, laddie.:cool::cool:

Oh, as an aside about you losing your post because ArtRage forum software killed it, I have had that experience as well many infuriating times. So it's not just you. What I recommend is that before you click on it to post, select all the text and copy it. And only after you have it copied, then press post. It has saved me a lot of grief. This forum software is only fair to middlin. . .
But it's a grand forum and that's a fact. So I ain't complainin' overmuch. Just figured out a work around. :rolleyes:
