    Another artist who should inspire some of you is Frederic Edwin Church who was a "central figure in the Hudson River School of American landscape painters"...

    Wiki : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frederic_Edwin_Church



    Cheers and please post your favorite artists to this thread...

    I'm also a fan of comic book and graphic novel writer/artist Paul Chadwick who is best known for his Darkhorse Comics work on "Concrete"...

    during some lunch time surfing at work I stumbled upon French artist Jean-Léon Gérôme whom I was not familiar with. I must say I really enjoyed viewing his paintings. Apparently he was also a sculptor.

    Form his wiki...

    Jean-Léon Gérôme (11 May 1824 – 10 January 1904) was a French painter and sculptor in the style now known as Academicism. The range of his oeuvre included historical painting, Greek mythology, Orientalism, portraits and other subjects, bringing the Academic painting tradition to an artistic climax. He is considered one of the most important painters from this academic period, and in addition to being a painter, he was also a teacher with a long list of students.

    Examples of his paintings...

    I recently came across the work of Chuck Pinson who works in traditional media and thought I should share his online gallery with my fellow friends here...

    Well, it's merely my recounting of some really amazing artists. They carry the stories. Speaking of which, I think since I posted that about Joe Henninger earlier in this thread, they put up (or maybe I just found) a really nice Wiki on him. And there is a sample of a page of watercolors. . . I think they're on a single sheet which would make them very small indeed and perhaps he did them in his studio. Anyway, these were done in 1986 which was quite a while after I had met him, and my recollection is that they were generally like the ones shown. Looking at those postage stamp size pics really doesn't do them justice. But it's better than nothing to get the concept of what he did. Also he worked for several different studios, none of which was 20th Century Fox, heh, so I got that detail wrong.

    I recently remembered a picture on my best friend's mom's wall (back in the 60s and 70s) that I really liked by a guy named Paul Detlefsen. I liked the brilliance of color and the fine etails: https://www.google.com/search?safe=o...71.oqDvt9yvT_M

    Someone had a single post, talking about a music group. It seems to be gone now. That's who I was addressing.
