“The Magic Tree” is an original, signed acrylic painting on canvas by artist Michael Arnold. This painting was inspired by a movie I was watching that had a very unique fig tree in it. I loved the way the tree seemed to have a life of its own and wanted to incorporate its unique shape into one of my paintings. I decided to go with a more whimsical look rather than realism. The painting can be purchased on our website: http://www.michaelarnoldart.com/Magic_Tree.htm

"Old Boots" is an original, signed acrylic painting on

canvas by Citrus County Florida Artist Michael Arnold.

I set out to paint from start to finish a work that copied how the old masters used to paint. They would first paint the entire painting in grisaille (black and white) and then layer thin glazes of paint over the top. Interestingly, many painters had their students do a lot of the grunt work on the grisaille portion and the masters would come along and lay down the color.

I began with a layer of sap green, then added burnt sienna in some areas. I then switched to cobalt blue to deepen the shadows. I worked some Hooker's green into the shadows as well and then came back with some yellow ochre and more burnt sienna. I added more blue and greens into the shoes on the right to get them to black, while I tried to get the shoes on the left to brown.You can purchase the original  painting on our website http://www.michaelarnoldart.com/shoes.html

"The Swamp" original signed acrylic painting by award winning artist Michael Arnold.

The Swamp is an abstract using acrylic over gold leaf. It was my first attempt at the process and I enjoyed it and will try to incorporate it into future paintings. I named this painting The Swamp because I think it gives off a reptilian feel. As a big Gator fan I consider the swamp to be a compliment to the piece.

"The Rooster" original signed acrylic painting by award winning artist Michael Arnold.

I created this rooster after remodeling our kitchen. We were looking at French country decor and everything pointed to roosters and chickens. I created this piece by using the handle of my paintbrush instead of the traditional method of using the brush end. In the close up pictures you can see the lines made by the paintbrush handle.

Steam Engine 519 is a gallery wrapped, acrylic painting measuring 45 3/4 inches x 34 1/2 inches.

I have been intrigued by the idea of painting a train and settled on a steam engine. I wanted to create a mood of the engine chugging along at night covered partially covered in steam. I enjoyed developing the various textures including smoke and metal.

This painting can be purchase at Michael Arnold Art.com, where you can also see additional views of this magnificent painting.

This is painting of jazz saxophonist and composer Wayne Shorter is an 18" x 24" original acrylic painting on canvas.

I have wanted to return to the subject of the saxophone in a painting for some time and hoped to this time include it being played. I also wanted to experiment with painting different surfaces - like metal and glass. My technique for this painting was to paint and underpainting using dark purple and white. 

Once I had my tones set and the underpainting completely finished. I glazed over the base painting with thin layers of paint. I used sap green, has a yellow, burnt sienna, Prussian blue and pyrrole red glazing to finish it out.

You can purchase Jazz Sax Player on our website and also view additional photos of this unique artwork.

I have been using a new process (for me anyway). It is one used frequently by the masters. You lay down a grisaille under painting and then glaze over it. I just finished one of old boots that turned out pretty well. This is the finished work.

I started a new one in a similar fashion. I chose a jazz/saxophonist as the subject matter and I hope to have him emerge from the darkness. I imagine him in a dark, smokey lounge belting out the tunes of the day.

I started by covering the entire 18x24 canvas in several coats of dark purple. I then sketched out the subject using a white pastel pencil.

 I then covered the background with a thin glaze of Prussian blue.

With a mixture of dark purple and titanium white I began to create a two-tone under painting.

More progress has been made on the under painting.

Pardon the variation in colors, I have been taking the photos in the closet without the flash. The dark background makes it tough to get a good read taking the photo outside or under fluorescent lighting

Her artwork is unique and refreshing and some of my favorites include:

Abstract Deer - a 16" x 20 " 2017 acrylic on

canvas painting by Florida Artist Megan Arnold. This artwork was

inspired by me trying to do something different and steeping out of

my comfort zone.

 

 "Voodoo Part Deux" - a 11" x 14" 2017

acrylic on canvas painting by Florida Artist Megan Arnold. This

artwork is the second installation of my Voodoo series. be sure to

check out Skull and

Hoodoo .

"Jelly" - a 16" x 20" 2017 acrylic on canvas painting

by Florida Artist Megan Arnold. This artwork is my first attempt at

a jellyfish and is part of my sea life collection. This piece is currently displayed at Waverly Florist in Crystal River and can be both viewed and bought there.

"At Peace" - a 2017 16 "x 20

" acrylic on canvas painting

by Florida Artist Megan Arnold. This artwork is a combination of

teals of dark grey.

"His Holiness" -  is

a 2017 acrylic on canvas painting by Florida Artist Megan Arnold.

This painting  of

Buddha is a

16" x 20" acrylic on canvas. No paint brushes were used, I finger

painted the entire painting. Lots of texture from heavy paint usage.

I was inspired to paint this thanks to constant curiosity with

Buddhism. And what better way to paint something so ethereal than

with your actual finger tips?

" Dorothy " is an original, signed acrylic painting on canvas by Citrus County

Florida artist Michael Arnold.

This acrylic 4-foot-by-3-foot painting is a closeup

view of Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz.

I originally had it more like a sepia toned photo but

decided midway through to add color. In the movie, this was from the

black and white portion of the movie before they got to Oz and

everything turned to color. This is the fourth in a series of

Hollywood icons.

This artwork was created using acrylic paint on a high quality wrapped

canvas. Acrylic paint works very well on stretched canvas. When

purchasing artwork many people aren't sure what the difference is

between acrylic and oil paintings. The main difference between acrylics

and oil paints is the inherent drying time. Oils allow for more time to

blend colors and apply even glazes over underpaintings. This slow drying

aspect of oil can be seen as an advantage for certain techniques, but in

other regards it impedes the artist trying to work quickly. The fast

evaporation of water from the acrylic paint film can be slowed with the

use of acrylic retarders. Retarders are generally glycol or

glycerin-based additives.

Giotto

di Bondone , better known simply as Giotto, was an Italian painter and

architect from Florence. Giotto was described by Dante as the foremost

painter, displacing the elder Cimabue in fame and fortune. Posterity,

however, has seen Giotto in stronger terms, as the revolutionary who

altered the course of painting in Western Europe, striking out of the

Gothic and Byzantine styles towards the

Renaissance .

Giotto di Bondone studied both nature and the human body which he saw as

invested with great dignity, deep emotions, and humanity, and he placed

his human figures in free, albeit shallow, space. It is to the credit of

his contemporaries, artists and laymen alike, that Giotto di Bondone's

genius was recognized and accepted immediately. The old forms of art

gradually vanished, first from Florence and then from other Italian art

centers, to be replaced by new art forms from which there could be no

turning back.

Richard

Estes is an American painter best known for his photorealistic paintings

which generally consist of reflective, clean, and inanimate city and

geometric landscapes. Estes is regarded as one of the founders of the

international

photo-realist movement of the late

1960's, with painters such as Ralph Goings,

Chuck Close , and Duane Hanson. Their work

exhibits a high finish, fine details and an almost photographic fidelity

to reality.

 Richard Estes, in some ways, is like an urban

Andrew Wyeth . While Estes devotes his attention to newness and Wyeth

emphasizes weathered use, there is a similar minuteness of attention to

detail, texture and brushwork. Underlying each brilliant technique,

however, is emotional content of a differing kind of somewhat aloof,

stand-offishness in Estes, a melancholy sense of loss and the passing of

an era in Wyeth.

Richard Estes is the best of the Photo-Realists in terms of handling

paint, building forms and expressing himself in his work. There is mind

and emotion at work in Estes, though he would deny the latter quality.

His concern for visual observation is so acute, his awareness of

symbolic or emotional content apparently so minimal, that it might be

said of Estes, as it was of Monet, that "he is only an eye; but what an

eye." Estes has exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide. Richard

Estes's work can be found in public and private collections including

the Art Institute of Chicago, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden

in Washington D.C., the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of

Fine Art, both in New York City.

" The Kid " is an original, signed acrylic painting on canvas by Citrus County

Florida artist Michael Arnold .

This painting is from the publicity poster for the

1921 silent film "The Kid," written, directed and starring Charlie

Chaplin. The painting is 11.5 x 45.5 on canvas primed several times with

gesso and tinted with a gesso/cobalt blue as the final coat. I then used

layers of Prussian blue to paint the image. I utilized a watercolor

effect with liquid acrylic and water mixed with the blue.

This artwork was created using acrylic paint on a high quality wrapped

canvas. Acrylic paint works very well on stretched canvas. When

purchasing artwork many people aren't sure what the difference is

between acrylic and oil paintings. The main difference between acrylics

"Paul Newman" is an original, signed acrylic painting on canvas by Citrus County

Florida artist Michael Arnold. 

This painting is the first in a series of Hollywood Legends paintings I plan to work on. This is a painting of Humphrey Bogart as Philip Marlowe in the film Howard Hawks film The Big Sleep. It is painted in acrylics using three colors - cobalt blue, burnt sienna and yellow ochre. I also used a little titanium white. I built the canvas 3-foot by 4-foot and stretched gessoed canvas over it. I prepped the canvas using gesso tinted with burnt sienna. I had a lot of fun and the painting went pretty quick. I used loose strokes, which gives the painting a lot of texture when viewed closeup. Once you step back 10-15 feet, the painting takes on a whole new look.

This original acrylic painting by award winning artist Michael Arnold is

on a quality canvas. The sides are  painted and it does not need to

be hung with a frame. Each Michael Arnold painting is an original

one of a kind signed piece of art and comes with a certificate of

authenticity.

Rather than start a large project, I have been doing a series of studies to hone some much needed skills.

This painting was done with acrylics on a roughly 14 x 18 inch Masonite board that I primed with gesso. The young girl sits in a sewing room cutting fabric that piles up by her feet. I wanted to try an indoor painting with a person and work on painting a figure in a space. Overall the painting was good practice and it gives me some things to work on in future studies.



This old wagon was painted using acrylics on piece of Masonite board 14 x 18 primed with gesso. I wanted to practice painting wood and this old discarded wagon provided an excellent reference to practice from.

Edward

Wadsworth was a major figure in British art of the first half of the

twentieth century. Edward Wadsworth was a painter of marines, marine

still-life, landscapes and abstracts in tempera paints. He was also a

draughtsman, muralist and wood engraver. A number of his mural

decorations were for the ocean liner "Queen Mary". Edward Wadsworth is

most famous for his close association with Vorticism and copying the

styles of

Pablo Picasso .

Edward Wadsworth was raised in a northern industrial environment that

was to appear with great forcefulness in his Vorticist work. Like many

other Vorticists, Wadsworth's interest in the machine showed itself at

an early age. Under the impact of the Post-Impressionists, he turned for

a while to portraiture, beach scenes and still-life's.

Edward Wadsworth's painting " The Beached Margin" (shown above) displays

nautical objects assembled in bold relief against a marine background of

of sea and sand. Using the difficult medium of egg tempera, which Edward

Wadsworth mixed himself he is able to show amazing detail. The painting

comes close to

Surrealism in it's style and clarity. These

imaginative geometric creations offer up an intellectual pleasure beyond

that of a simple still life painting.

Edward

Wadsworth exhibited first with the NEAC in 1911, becoming a member in

1921, and the Friday Club from 1912-1913. In 1913 Wadsworth's work

appeared in the second

Post-Impressionist Exhibition and

he joined the Omega Workshops. When Wyndham Lewis broke from the Omega,

Wadsworth followed him and subsequently showed in the Post-Impressionist

and

Futurist exhibition, Dore Galleries.

In June of 1914, Edward Wadsworth was in a group of artists, including

Lewis, who jeered Marinetti's public performance of "The Battle Of

Adrianople". Edward Wadsworth was a signatory of the Vorticist Manifesto

published in BLAST the next month, and also supplied a review of

Wassily Kandinsky 's "Concerning The

Spiritual In Art" and images to be reproduced in the magazine.

Rococo

is an eighteenth century art style which placed emphasis on portraying

the carefree life of the aristocracy rather than on grand heroes or

pious martyrs. The word Rococo is seen as a combination of the French

rocaille, or stone garden (referring to arranging stones in natural

forms like shells), and the Italian barocco, or Baroque style. Due to

Rococo love of shell-like curves and focus on decorative arts, some

critics used the term to derogatively imply that the style was frivolous

or merely modish. When the term was first used in English in about 1836,

it was a colloquialism meaning "old-fashioned". However, since the mid

19th century, the term has been accepted by art historians. Rococo

stresses purely ornamental, light, casual, irregular design.

 The French

Jean-Antoine Watteau is often

referred to as the greatest of the Rococo painters. Watteau's work began

to epitomize the movement with its idyllic and charming approach. He

often created asymmetrical compositions. This type of aesthetic balance

became not only an important part of Rococo art, but of design in

general. Another

artist that represented the Rococo period was

Francois Boucher , who created

paintings and designed tapestries for the French royalty and nobility.

 His picture of the Embarkation for Cythera (shown here) demonstrates

the elegance of this style. While there is still some debate about the

historical significance of the style to art in general, Rococo is now

widely recognized as a major period in the development of European art.

Hieronymus Bosch was one of the late great medieval Dutch painters, born in 1450 as the

Renaissance

in Italy was starting to flower. Hieronymus Bosch mixed his version of medieval grotesques and Flemish proverbs into an intriguing allegory of man's base nature, which could run amok if not properly cared for. At the time of his death, Bosch was internationally celebrated as an eccentric painter of religious visions who dealt in particular with the torments of hell. During his lifetime Bosch's works were in the inventories of noble families of the Netherlands, Austria, and Spain, and they were imitated in a number of paintings and prints throughout the 16th century.

The

most distinguished African-American artist of the nineteenth century,

Henry Ossawa Tanner was also the first artist of his race to achieve

international acclaim. Tanner is often regarded as a realist painter,

focusing on accurate depictions of subjects. While his early works, such

as "The Banjo Lesson" were concerned with everyday life as an African

American, Tanner's later paintings focused mainly on the religious

subjects for which he is now best known.

 Henry's

first artistic efforts were marine scenes and animals painted at the

Philadelphia Zoo. In 1878 he painted several Adirondack landscapes while

convalescing from an illness. In 1879, Tanner enrolled at the

Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, where he joined Thomas Eakins's

coterie. Tanner moved to Atlanta in 1889 in an unsuccessful attempt to

support himself as an artist and instructor among prosperous middle

class African-Americans.

Bishop and Mrs. Joseph C. Hartzell arranged for Tanner's first solo

exhibition, the proceeds from which enabled the struggling artist to

move to Paris in 1891.Henry moved to Paris France to escape the racial

prejudice that was an impediment to the aspirations and ambitions of all

African Americans in that era. Paris was a welcome escape for Tanner;

within French art circles the issue of race mattered little. Tanner

acclimated quickly to Parisian life.
