After CÚzanne, here's a loose copy of a still life by Braque one of the cubism founders.
This is another test exploiting the new hard knife and very low loading thick oil.
I used a limited palette made only of white, green ochre, yellow ochre, ultramarine, burnt Sienna, umber and Payne's grey.
I mixed directly on the canvas and in place and picked some colors I got also in some other areas in a few cases.

Caesar... amazing results from a limited palette. as Steve said this is a Rich painting.. the implied colors and it has a real oil painting feel to it. Very nice work... you are on a roll with some very successful works with this technique. I have found that by selecting a careful and limited set of colors I can get a much stronger and more coherent painting than just splashing around with every color I can... although it might not look that way sometimes..:);););)

Thank You, dear Semd74! Using both a very low loaded thick oil and a loaded knife it's a way to simulate, up to a point, some painting gestures and brushwork.

Dear Gary, the set of colors I used is very limited and much similar to the most limited one of the classical masters (although they used black rather than Payne's grey for dark). There's no primary color and not even pure secondary ones except the ultramarine which is a blue, but with a slight red hue. Nonetheless the painting looks colorful enough without clashes.
Thank You!

Thank You, dear Pat! I'm always curios to understand how much art and how much skill is in a famed master by facing the challenge to give a try. My experiments are less on AR features and more on the artistic core (also because I'm not at all from a generation PC-virtual and I can be very hardly deceived or fascinated by even the most sophisticated PC rendered realities)

Glad You like this Picasso's mate, dear ValÚrie, one of the father of cubism I like even more than Pablo in this genre. Thank You!

This is out of the art history rabbit hole, dear Sandra ... :D Thank You!

A quite artisanal pseudo-copy, dear Kenmo. Thank You!

That's the merit of the actual creator of this composition, dear Jean, and with very few colors, all tertiary ones and only one primary. Thank You!

If you don't mind, please explain "cubism" as I am not familiar with the concept.

08-04-2011, 02:04 AM
Sure, dear Semd74.
Cubism was a painting movement started in the beginning of the XX century by Picasso and Braque (other followed) whose style was intented to show multiple views and perspectives of the subject simultaneously (just to simplify it very much).
