Both the base and the object which stands erect from it, looks worn as they possess tiny rough markings. The modeling of this entire piece is white. The form of this representational piece is placed to the left of the assemblage. Cupid, the male figure with wings is placed to the right of the woman. His head lays on hers gently in a downward position.
Their wingspan range from six and a half feet. Bald eagles weigh from six to eight pounds. Female bald eagles are larger than the males. To help them soar, eagles use thermals which are rising currents of warm air and up-drafts generated by terrain such as valley edges or mountain slopes. Soaring is accomplished with very little wing-flapping, enabling them to conserve energy.
Visually the painting is two dimensional, not a lot of depth and shadowing giving it a flat appearance. At first the painting did seem to be flat but upon closer inspection the painting was textured. Especially on sections where the artist would apply heavy wide strokes in some areas more than others using lines that are thick and bold and causing the paint to rise from the board. The artwork looked simple in my opinion, there was not a lot of detail, use of just primary colors and some secondary colors, and with red being the emphasis. The objects in the artwork are independent in nature with minor overlapping but with detail applied to the individual objects.
The first was the drawing he was working on the wall and the second was the Universal Cell. Matthew Ritchie states that “drawing is a central component to his artistic practice.” The drawing he creates on the wall is a very dynamic piece because of the size of the piece. The piece seems to evoke a sense of chaos and peace. The drawing seems chaotic because of the way the lines intertwine with each other. It also seems to evoke some sort of peace within the drawing because of the fluidity of the lines.
What Makes Art, Art? A good explanation of art is, “I know it when I see it”. Art will always be art, even if it is not accepted or appreciated by everyone. Art can signify many things to different people. Any work that touches us emotionally bringing happiness, amusement, laughter, tears or even anger should be considered art.
Do the actions give clues to what might happen afterwards? In most cases the artist highlights a the key scene, emphasizing the the most important part to the narrative. When pieced together, all of these aspects may bring understanding to the story the artist is portraying. A great example of Narrative Art is the “The Prodigal Son” by Teniers. Created in 1640, this oil on canvas gives us a glimpse into the world of the the famous religious story.
It is only imagination now that can reveal the mystery and hidden message of the urn, and the intended purpose and inspiration felt by the artist. A single piece of art, regardless of the medium, is an artist’s gift to an observer. Even though, “everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it” (Confucius). Art is meant to be enjoyed and appreciated in so many ways. If it is a painting of someone, appreciation returns to the artist for the detail in texture, colors and paint strokes upon the canvas.
In both regions painting has been seen as relying to the highest degree on the imagination of the artist, and the furthest removed from manual labour - in Chinese painting the most highly valued styles were those of "scholar-painting", at least in theory practiced by gentleman amateurs. The Western hierarchy of genres reflected similar
Photography is a good example of “nontraditional art” such as He Got Game by Robin Rhode, which seems to be both photography and a form of bodily expression. When I see what I consider to be art, I respond to it as an individual piece of great skill and work. Especially when looking at what is considered to be a “traditional” piece of artwork, I try to think of what exactly the artist was feeling and their thoughts at the time of creating it. If their piece is strong enough for me to feel what they have put in to it, then I would think of that as a great piece of artwork. The formal qualities of art are not all that important to me.
This portrait expresses the different principles of art, such as balance, effects, and shade. The Paul Revere portrait is similar to the John Adams portrait because of the balance, patterns of texture, and the symbolic objects, but it also differs from the painting by the size and
