    Exclamation Jules favourite art links (of very talented artists)

    There are so many art websites that I favourite I cant keep up, I just thought I'd share a few of them with my rager friends.

    I couldnt possible create the types and styles of work I find, as much as Id love to.

    So many ideas so little time.. so little talent (on my part lol)....both traditional and digital

    Macardles - interesting, I think she is one of your inspiration with her patchworks of bright colors.

    Freeman - meh, Thomas Kinkaid lookalike. Saccharine with no substance.

    Earnshaw - really bad, everything looks like ineptly copied photographs. Can't make myself warm up to this stuff.

    Woolley - interesting at the first sight, but looking at more than three works makes you realize he uses the same washed-out palette for everything.

    Wilneff - exactly what you expect from modern wildlife art: very technically impressive, but completely photographic.

    Here are some of my favorite less-known artists:

    Joaquin Sorolla-y-Bastida: http://www.artcyclopedia.com/artists...a_joaquin.html , http://www.joaquin-sorolla-y-bastida.org/ - Impressionist, insanely fine sense for color. His ability to paint white things brings me to the verge of tears.

    Mikalojus Konstantinas Ciurlionis: http://ciurlionis.licejus.lt/MKC_Tapyba_en.htm - artist and composer, perhaps the only artist ever who succeeded to paint music.

    Kei Acedera: shares http://imaginism.deviantart.com/ with Bobby Chiu, who's no mean guy himself. Great whimsical sketches. Hello Kitty saves the day!

    Kawase Hasui: http://www.castlefinearts.com/Japane...Biography.aspx, also http://www.hanga.com/bio.cfm?ID=2 - the spirit of Japanese landscape print passed from Hokusai to Hiroshige, and then to Kawase Hasui.

    Pat Earnshaw is my cousin, she happens to be a very talented artist, she paints everything by eye mainly plein air, thanks very much for your comments

    This is general chat, not the critique thread,
    Remember art is for everyone not just you!

    cheers.

    Why are some people so impolite, manners maketh the man I was told and cost nothing. I guess they get a buzz out of upsetting folks anyway I thought your links were great Jules and I checked them all out, they gave me a lot of pleasure.

    No Rose I wasnt meaning you and yes I wish there was something that a person could take to cure bad manners and bullish behaviour. It really upsets me to see such words written down in the wonderful friendly place.

    My sincere apologies, Jules... I had no way of knowing she was your cousin. I didn't think this was your personal favorites thread, and thought anyone could participate.

    Jules, how dare you post a list of your favourite artists. You should have checked with me first and I would have told you who to pick.

    May I remind you all to check with a higher authority first before you try to have an opinion of you own.

    Needless to say you have made a fool of yourself by choosing and posting without verification by a superior and it was necessary to point out your error in public.

    Now sit up straight in front of your monitor..... and who told you those shoes went with that top?
