Those who are not conversant in works of art are often surprised at the high value set by connoisseurs on drawings which appear careless, and in every respect unfinished; but they are truly valuable... they give the idea of a whole.
- Sir Joshua Reynolds
We do not see things as they are, we see them as we are.

My articles for Painting.Answers.com: Nov – Dec, 2013

Posted by Charley Parker at 6:51 pm

My articles for Painting.Answers.com — Nov - Dec, 2013
I have continued to write a series of articles on painting for Answers.com as their Category Expert Writer for that subject.

Most of them are roughly split between “how-to” articles on painting tools and techniques, and history-oriented articles on individual artists, art movements and particular paintings.

You can see my most recent contributions at the top of the Painting.Answers.com page. I maintain a more complete linked list of my Answers.com articles here on Lines and Colors / Answers.

Here are my topics for November and December of 2013:

December 2013

Visual Aids for Painting
Gustave Courbet: Rebellious Painter of Realism
Choosing Brushes for Oil Painting
Painting a Series of the Same Subject
Linear and Atmospheric Perspective in Landscape Painting

November 2013
