Inktober 2019, My First Try and My Art Creations, Collage.

In this Blog on Inktober, 2019, I explain to you what Inktober actually Is, and I hope the information helps you to think about contributing to the 2020, Inktober Challenge. I attempted Inktober, 2019 for the first time. I will tell you about the method I used for Inktober that actually made me, meet the challenge, for the first time. I will show you the Art Work I Created. Actually you will see, as long as you stay true, to creating your way for the month of October, every year, you will be greatly rewarded for your effort, as a true Artist.

Inktober by Mr Jake Parker, 31 Days, 31 Drawings, Inktober. Every October, artists all over the world take on the Inktober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month in October. Mr Jake Parker, created Inktober in 2009, as a challenge to improve his inking skills, and to develop positive drawing habits. Since 2009, Inktober has grown, worldwide, with thousands of artists taking on this Month Long Challenge, every year. Parker say’s that anyone can do Inktober, all you need to do is pick up the Inktober Rules.

  1.  Make a drawing in ink ( you can do a pencil under drawing if you want )
  2.  Post it online
  3. Hashtag it with,   #inktober and Inktober 2019#
  4.  Repeat

Note That:  you can do it daily, or go the half-marathon route and post every other day, or just do the post once a week. Whatever you decide, just be consistent with the postings. Inktober, is about growing and improving and forming positive habits, so the more you are consistent, the greater your work improves.

My method for doing the Inktober, 2019, I did not follow the Inktober Rules, I made my own rules, to suit my time and style of making Creative Art.

Every Monday morning around 10am, I would sit in my Art Studio, and search the internet for free photo stock. I chose this year, to search for Flowers and People, photos, to get ideas to draw, in 2b Eco pencil, in my style and technique.

I would draw, Six different pictures, in my art style in pencil, on each art notebook page. When I drew all the pictures on each page, I would trace over the Picture in Sharpie–fine black Marker. The next morning at 11am, I would sit in my Art studio, and Colour the page in Watercolours, and the next days, to complete the Six pages in a week.

On Monday morning, I would start the above method for the next week again, for the Six days. The first 15 days, I used this method and made my pictures of flowers.

The next 16 days, the free photo stock pictures I searched for were, for People pictures. I drew them also in 2b Eco pencil. Then I used Sharpie Thick–Coloured Markers. Then each day, I would Colour the pictures in, Pearl Watercolour, Colours. If you look at the paintings, you will see the Different effect in, the Different media I used. It, Does make a difference, to the Art Creations I made For this Inktober, 2019.

Note that I have only picked out Eight paintings, in each method used, to give you an idea, of what I Art Created. I think you can see that the Style looks the same for all the paintings. I think that the Technique of the Media used give, a very different result, so I think we can say, that indeed, the Materials used in Art Creating, Does give paintings, a Totally different result…To the Paintings.

Basic Watercolour, Colours, used, in the following Paintings.

Positive Painting Colours and My Art Creations too..., Uncategorized

Positive Painting Colours and My Art Creations too…

In this Blog, Positive Painting Colours, I think it will be interesting to see how Colour can be used, to Sell our Art Creations. To see further if Colour can be used in other ways, and if Yes, how and why? I will also include, Two colourful Art Creations, I have made for inclusion in this Blog.

Use the hidden meaning of Colour in your Art–colour is a powerful tool to use in your Art creating, because a colour or colours can bring in the Viewers focus, right into and onto your Art. Colours also have a Positive effect on our Mental State and overall Health, as individuals. Colours can also have the great benefits of relaxing and calming our Minds and Our whole bodies.

Colours in our Art and in our Designs, help us as Genuine individuals to show our Natural style and good taste, in Interior design, in Graphic design, in Advertising and lastly as Creative Art Creators of Successful Art.

As Artists we Internally teach ourselves naturally, which colours are Positive or Negative in our Art Creations, and we use the Colours to our Advantage in our Art, to Entice people to our Art Works.

We examine how the Cool and Warmer colours, Affect our audience, via the Colours we use, in our Art work.

Cool colours--Blue under tones, Calm the mind. Many decorators use Blues — in quiet environments.  Blue lowers the Heart rate and Slows down, our hunger.

This painting, Mixed Media Collage, was made in the Preparation Stage on Creatives Acid free, Watercolour paper. Using the Creatives Coloured Card stock, and I cut the shapes, and after drawing the Bird, I glued the shapes on the Water colour paper. I used Mont Marte–Matt Colours, Cobalt blue and a littlest of the Phthalo blue, to make the wash. When dry, I used Colourful Crayons, to colour the Bird, using both Cool and Warm colours. To complete the Painting, I used for the outline of the Picture, a Sharpie, Black Fine Marker.  I think, the completed Painting looks both inviting and interesting in the both the Cool and Warm colours I have used.

Blue is a Strong and dependable Colour. Blue is used in Uniforms and in Business suits. Dark Blue is the Colour mostly worn by Top Professionals, in our Societies. Blue and Greens are used to advertise, Medicines and Health care products. In Theatres Green Walls calm, the Nervous system of Actors. Dark green is best in Studios and in Offices. Green is the go to Colour, for Our Outdoor products.

Warm colours–the Yellow undertones, can Insight happiness or Pure violence. Red, orange, yellow colours, make you, Hungry and Thirsty for alcohol. Red is the colour, that Attracts people, and Increases their heart rates.

The painting that follows is a Painting made as a Mixed Media Collage, in Creative, Colourful Watercolours, on Acid free, Creatives Watercolour paper. For the Collage part which was made first, Creatives Acid free, Coloured Card stock, shapes were made and glued onto the Watercolour paper. Then I drew the Flowers, over the top, in a 2B, Eco Lead Pencil. I mixed Acrylic Silver Series–Mont Marte, Matte colours, Virdian and a littlest Cobalt blue, with water, and I painted this onto the Collage. When dried, I used Watercolours to colour the painting. To complete this painting, I traced around the Flowers in, Sharpie, Black Fine marker. I am thinking the result is Unique, and the Colours, are the Enticing Factor in this painting.

The Colour, History Theory–the Philosopher, Leone Bettista Alberti (c. 1435) and the Artist/inventor, Leonardo da Vinci (c. 1495) were the First to write on Colours.

It was in 1666, that Isaac Newton’s Theory of Colour, and the Primary colours was introduced.

After Newton’s Colour Theory, Moses Harris created the First colour wheel, Red, blue, yellow, as the Primary colours.

In the early Twentieth century, the German painter Johannes Itten, added the Secondary and Tertiary colours. Also gave us the Idea of the, Warm and the Cool colours, and the fact, that these Shades have Either the Warm or a Cool base.

The Complementary and Colour Harmony, give a Great visual impact, when they Lie near to each Other. The complimentary colours, are Opposite, to each other on the Colour wheel.

The Meaning of Colour

  1. Red–Strength romance excitement, vitality, physical power, outgoing, ambitious and impulsive.
  2. Orange–is a Cheerful colour.
  3. Yellow–Sunshine, represents light.
  4. Green–Colour of harmony, balance, security.

portraits and my portrait art creations...

Portraits and My Portrait Art Creations…

In this Blog, Portraits, I examine what is the Portrait, and if it had any Benefits for Society in the past , and if today Portraits are still Valued, or if Portraits, are a lost Art Form, for Society. Besides, the Artist, Portrait Painting, are there other Media, that are used, with the Universal use of the Newer IT–Technology? Let us try to envision, what the Future has installed for the Portrait?

Portrait painting–is a genre in Art, in which the purpose is to show a Human Individual, and their personality. Portrait, Artists paintings, can describe their actual Portrait painting. People who Paint portraits can create their work, for Commissions, for the General Public or for the Private individual. The main purpose of a Portrait painting is for State recognition and Importance. Portrait paintings, are also the paintings made of family members,  as a record for their family, remembrance history.

Historically–Portrait paintings have been important for the Rich and the Powerful in Society.  As the time has moved forwards, the Middle classes, have Commissioned Portraits, of Family and their colleagues.

At the Present Time–Portraits are still Commissioned by Governments, corporations, groups, clubs and the Individual.

Portraits and Media–Portraits can be made in other Media, such as in Prints and in (Etchings and Lithography), photography, video and digital media. Throughout history, for all the Artists, in the different traditions, it has been necessary for the Artist, to learn newer and particular skills, for painting realistically the Portraited.

Technique and Practice–A well Painted portratit, needs to show the Inner essence of a person, or needs to be an excellent representation or show the likeness, of an individual. Artists usually aim for a Photographic realist looking painting, or an Impressionist, painting, or a similarity of their sitter. In a Caricature, in which an attempt is made to Exaggerate a characters, Physical features.

Artists–Edward Burke-Jones, said that the only True expression in a Portrait is the Likeness of a character and their Moral quality. Nothing that is Temporary, changing or accidental in the Portrait.

The Artist Gordan C. Aymar, said that the Eyes, are the place that we look at to give, the most, Reliable and complete information, of an individual in the Portrait paintings. The Eyebrows, show the Wonder, pity, fright, pain, cynicism, concentration, displeasure, surprise and Expectation. All these Emotions are expressed, in a Variety of variation, and also in Combinations of expression.

Portrait paintings–can show the subject, in Full length, (Whole Body), Half length, (from Head to waist or Hips), Head shoulders,–(Bust), or just the Head. Some of the other Variations, the person can be Clothed, or nude, indoors or outside, standing, seated, reclining, and even Horse–mounted.

Portraits–can be of Individuals, couples, parents, children, families, or Groups of people.

Portrait Creations–can be made in different media, which can include, Oil paints, watercolours, pen and ink, pencil, charcoal, pastel, and Mixed media. Artists have a wide-range of palette colours, to use to create the Portrait painting.

Overall Size of Portrait–the Artist does take into account, where the Final portrait will be hung. The Colour and style of the décor, the painting will be Shown in, are considered greatly by the Artist.

The Portrait Painting, Indian Summer, is made in Creations Watercolours, on A3, Acid free, Creatives Watercolour paper, and the Painting is completed in Sharpie Fine Black marker.

The drawing below is, the above completed Portrait painting. It is my Unique Art style and Version of a Free Photo Stock, Photo, that I used for the Initial Reference. I used a 2B, Eco Lead, Light Pencil, to make the drawing. I made a Wash to paint over the drawing using, Mont Marte–Silver Series Acrylic colours, Titanium white and a smallish amount of the Rose madder. When this wash was dry, I proceeded to paint the drawing in Creatives, Watercolours. And finished of the Portrait, in Sharpie Fine Marker.

sdc10968.jpg

Hue and Portraits–Creating a Portrait takes a lot of time, needing at least Four sittings. In the 18th century it would take at least a full year, to complete a portrait. After calming the sitter, and encouraging a natural pose, the Artist then studies the person in detail. Looking in particular for a Facial expression, that satisfies the Artists concept, of the Individual’s personality. The Posture is examined, to show the Emotional and physical state of the sitter, the Clothes of the sitter, are considered as the Overall impression. To keep the Sitter at ease, the artist will Maintain a pleasant, steady appearance, and Make light conversation, with the sitter.

Human Anatomy and Portraiture–in the Creation of a Successful portrait, the Overall, knowledge of The Human Anatomy is very important.

Portraits Outcome–Occasionally, the Client or the client’s family is unhappy with the Portrait. The Artist is then, required to re-touch the painting or in some case Redo the painting, or to Withdraw the Commission without being paid, the Artist suffering, the Humiliation of failure.

An example of a Portrait Failure–The famous and particular Gilbert Stuart, once replied to a client’s dissatisfaction with his wife’s portrait, by replying. ‘You bought me a Potato, and you expect as Peach!

The Portrait painting below, is my first attempt at Portrait drawing . I decided to use Acid free, A3, Creatives, Watercolour paper, it is my preferred paper to use. It has a fine texture and I thought I would use Soft coloured pastels, I like working in soft pastels, although I have not used them for awhile. I thought it would be fun to see if I could work on the Portrait. I have put it under the paragraph as A Failed Portrait, because it is my First Portrait attempt, and I think I did not, do the Painting the Justice, the painting deserved.

The drawing below is the above initial drawing for the above completed Pastel Portrait. I used a 2B, Eco Lead, light pencil, to draw the Portrait. Then I used Acrylics, Mont Marte-Silver Series, Colours, Cadmium yellow, Yellow orange and a littlest Raw umber, to make the Wash, that I applied over the initial drawing. When dry, I used Mungo Soft Pastels for the Colouring, and to finish the complete Portrait painting, I outlined the picture with Watercolour Black Pencil. To give the definition the Portrait needed, to finish it Off…

sdc10969.jpg

A Successful Portrait–can gain the Lifelong gratitude of a client. The Count Bulthanzar, was so pleased with the Portrait, ‘Raphael’ had created of his wife, that he told Raphael the Artist, “Your image…alone can lighten my cares, that image is my delight, I direct my smiles to it, it is my joy”.  (Above information, in Wikipedia Free Encyclopedia).

In concluding this Portraits examination of definite details, we can see that Portraits are a necessary part of society. Through History, Governments and Corporations, and the Rich Valued the Portraits. At this time, All Classes of Society have some form of Portrait Recording, for their Knowledge and for Remembrance. It is easy to believe, that the Portrait recording, whether the Portrait is Painted by an Artist, or made in other Media, that it will always be part of our Culture, always has been and will be, so it is… This is a Good Service available to us as a Society, it keeps us informed of how far we as Earthlings have Matured, in time, and What we have left Behind in the World’s, past.

Father’s Day?, and My Art Creations too…

In this Blog, Father’s Day, I look for information on Father’s Day and find out Why Father’s Day, is Celebrated and Why. When did the Father’s Day Celebration initially start, and in which country and by Whom?… Think about the Significance of this, Father’s Day, Celebration. How do we, celebrate Father’s Day?. I introduce my version of a Gift card,  for Father’s Day.

Father’s Day?–Father’s day is a Celebration to honour Fathers and Forefathers. This Celebration is celebrated in many Countries in the world, to Express our gratitude for Our fathers. You give Gift cards, bouquets, artificial flowers, quotations, show pieces and many other Thoughtful gifts to your Fathers. In todays Celebration of Father’s day, Gratitude is given also to Step fathers, grandfathers, father in-laws, uncles, and Fathers. Father’s day is celebrated also by, giving Special dinners, to Fathers and Towards Family Orientated activities. The idea of Father’s day celebration was Celebrated in 1909, by Mrs Sonora Louise Smart Dodd, from Spokare in the United States of America. Sonora was very close to her Father, Mr William Jackson Smart, a Civil War Veteran.

Sonora , thought if we Celebrated a day in Honour of our Mother, then we should Celebrate, Our Fathers. 

The following Painting, is my version of a Father’s Day, Handmade Art Creation, card made in my Unique, Style and technique. The Card was drawn on Acid free, Creatives Watercolour, Textured Paper, which is my preferred paper, to use. Then I Coloured, the Card in Watercolour, Creative Colours. The completed card, was finished, in Sharpie Black–Fine-liner, marker.

Finally in, 1972, President Richard Nixon, made Father’s Day a National Day of Observance. In the world, the Date is different for Celebrating Father’s day, and the way in which, People celebrate Father’s day, is different in every situation. ( Free–Information, taken from the Initial, Father’s Day, History. USA.)

Father’s Day in Australia–Many Australians observe Father’s day on the First Sunday of September. This is the day for People to show and Express, their Appreciation for their, Fathers and Father figures.

Father figures, can include Step fathers, father-in-laws, guardians, ( Foster Parents ), and family friends.

Anime’ or Manga? and My Art Creations To…

SDC10964 (2)In this Blog Anime’ or Manga, I research what exactly is Anime’ and Manga and where or who found or made this Art Form?  Thinking about how to create or make this art form, and why in particular this art form is highly important to a particular Culture in the world, and Why? Wondering if this art form, affects other Cultures or Not, and why and how? I think you can agree, this is a very interesting topic to read about.  I will also, show you my first attempt, at this art form of Anime’ and Manga.

The begging’s of Anime’ or Manga?–The term Manga was created by the Artist Hokusai, a prolific artist who lived from 1760-1849, who left over 30,000 works. His new term for his artwork was made up of the words  ‘Man’  meaning  ‘in spite of oneself’,  lax or whimsical, and  ‘ga’ , meaning  ‘picture’ . The first examples of Manga, were picture scrolls created in the 6 – 7th Century created by the Buddhist Monks. In the 17th Century, Woodblock prints were popular, these depicted the Age Pleasures, such as outfits and popular places to visit. In the late 18th Century, Kibyoushi, or  ‘yellow covers’  were popular. These were stories of Adults, with Dialogue and text, placed around illustrations. When Japan opened to the outside world, the European artists, introduced Shading, perspective and anatomy, to the Comics. At the end of the 19th Century, Comic strips appeared,  in the Japanese newspapers, and comics, became very popular. During the late 1920s and early 1930s, the Japanese governments, intimidated Artists and publishers. Many Magazines, closed down, or started  censoring themselves.

After World War II, the Cartoons flourished. The first weekly magazine devoted to comics was Shounen Magazine, which was the start of the comics, in 1959.
