It is impossible to think about our life without the colours. And the most striking example of display of the colours is the rainbow; when we look at it, it would seem that the colours of whole of the earth are sprayed on it. Here are some articles in which I have tried to introduce some of the players of these colour field, the artists and their styles.
No claim is made that these articles would make you an artist overnight. Neither it would be an easy journey on the land of art. But here you would find systematic guidance and narration of the paintings done by some of the master painters of the bygone era and modern time. The colourful plate offered here is full of illustrative drawings, wonderfully done watercolour paintings, and the unforgettable oil colours. The medium like acrylic is also narrated.
What is Painting
Painting, in simple words, is an act of applying paints on any surface. It would mean airbrushing, coating, enameling, splashing of colours or even varnishing. In fact the painting includes all of these; but it is much more than the sum of these acts. There are ways and means to describe the technical aspects and scientific effect of various colours in our mind. But the main reason we love colours and paintings are that these colours lives in our sensibilities. We love them spread in any form.
The Subjects : The subjects covered here are broadly comprise of still life, landscape, figurative paintings, miniatures, portrait painting, and basic art like pencil drawing. The most recurring theme would be to explore that how the artists see the objects lying before their eyes and how they conceive these objects in their minds. This part consists of the main lessons in the art of painting. The emotional and artistic process, the mental traffic through which an artists passes, and how the artists reflect to these phenomenon: these would be some surprise brush strokes you would see in the following articles.
