Here it's all about art and visual and no one talked about painting ! I'm quite surprised. Anyone who likes painting on the Emma Watson forum ?

First, I must say this : when I look at a painting, I admit I'm absolutely not able to judge the technic, to speak about the colors, the shapes... What I mean is that I like it for the entire impression I get, or I don't like it, but it's only about impression, not analysis, so it's very subjective.
But anyway, that doesn't forbid me to loooove art :D

I love classical paintings that are not Italians, mostly. I'm sorry but I just can't deal with religious subjects. Here are some painting I damire (I saw them in the Louvre in Paris) :

  • La Jeune Martyr by Paul Delaroche
    Posted Image
  • Pendemonuim by John Martin
    Posted Image
  • By Biard : Magdalena Bay
    Posted Image

I also mike very much Modern Art (not contemporary), such as :

  • Kandinsky (to me his work is full of joy)
    Posted Image
  • Georges Braque (he did, for some paintings, as well as Picasso, but I actually don't like Picasso at all)
    Posted Image
  • Simon Hantaï (with a A !) :

Here it is, and I can add so many other peace of work !
If you have anything to share, i'd love to see =)

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

Good thread!! I love paintings. I have so many favorites!!! I like almost all periods, except for Modern... I can't stand Modern Art. My favorites tend to be Old Masters, but I really like a little of everything.

Here are a few of my favorites:

1. David: "Oh, that I had wings like a Dove! For then would I fly away, and be at rest." Psalm 55:6 By Frederic Leighton

2. Las Meninas By Diego Velázquez
Posted Image

3. Ballet Class By Edgar Degas (he is my favorite)
Posted Image

4. Summertime By Mary Cassatt
Posted Image

That's just a few though. I could go one for hours!!

I love going to the museum and looking at pantings. I try and think of what is happening before I read up about it. I like to look at the detail used.

I have enjoyed painting a lot in the past though.

Oh my,finally someone who loves art!! I study Fine Arts,the department of PAINTING!!!!!!! I love all periods,but my favorite has to be Surrealism! I love Salvador Dali and he's a huge inspiration for me! I love those eccentric artists,better say,people. Also I love Kay Sage and Yves Tanguy,both surrealists. As of modern art is concerned,I love Victoria Frances ( even though she's more of an illustrator than a painter) and I highly recommend seeing some of her work!

Cheers mates :D

I guess I like what I call "idealized realism" of the large old pieces such as this one.....the sheer atmosphere it evokes...:king:


And I managed to make it so small the effect is all gone!
