The Emma-Watson.net Forum

Recommended Posts

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

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

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

4. Summertime By Mary Cassatt

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! Edited by 130671
