Sunday, May 25th 2014   -   By: Courtney Jordan   -
Julie Seated with Hands Clasped by Steven Assael, 2007, drawing, 22 x 15.5. We all know that drawing the nude figure is a, if not the , classical way of depicting the human body. You gain so much from those kind of explorations--a sense of gesture, a foundation for drawing anatomy , and a close study of bodily proportions, which are crucial for establishing realism in any figurative representation. But breaking the mold and adding clothing to your figure drawing art can lead to quite a few benefits...( read more )

Friday, May 23rd 2014   -   By: Dion   -

This is such a great way to lose an hour or two online! The Metropolitan Museum of Art has grown its image archive online by 400,000. The museum is allowing free access to the images and free non-commercial use. They’ll be Open Access for Scholarly Content (OASC) which means they’re freely available to use for scholarly and academic publication. My only question is what took you so long? It’s 2014!

Here’s some highlights from the museum collection..

Building Up Line
Thursday, May 22nd 2014   -   By: Courtney Jordan   -

Minerva by Auguste Rodin simultaneously shows the centered

grounding of the human body's core and the fluidity of its limbs. 

Painting is closer to three-dimensionality than drawing simply by way of the medium. You can build up sculpted areas and thick passages of paint, which is much harder to do in ink, charcoal, or pencil. That's why I like to think of drawing with a sculptor's sensibility, so that from the get-go I am in the mindset of trying to solidify and turn forms on the page.

Thursday, May 22nd 2014   -   By: Dion   -

Another art gallery in Sydney will close at the end of this month. After twenty years the Eva Breuer gallery will close its doors for the last time with an exhibition of works by Victor Rubin. Nicky McWilliam, the daughter of the late gallery founder says she no longer has the time required to run the business the way it should be. Coincidentally, Queen’s “Another one bites the dust” song just started playing on my iTunes shuffle!

I wouldn’t own an art gallery in Australia at the moment if you paid me to! Well maybe if you paid me I I
Plein Air Painting on the Mighty Mississippi
Wednesday, May 21st 2014   -   By: johnandann@theartistsroad   -
We believe in the truth of the adage that there are "diamonds in our own backyards." To live it instead of just talking about it, we made the short trip to paint the Mississippi River near St. Louis, Mo. just a few hours from our door. We have always been inspired by rivers big and small. Whether the subject is interesting wildlife or fabulous light or the raw power of nature, there is always something great to see and paint along them. Over the years, we have returned to these rivers to...( read more )
Kids Growin’ Up In the Heartland
Tuesday, May 20th 2014   -   By: Courtney Jordan   -

I love that John Cougar Mellencamp song! Mostly because it reminds me of being young, and that life is full of possibilities and change. It's also a great reminder that the "small" stories of our everyday lives are the ones that matter most.

Mary Whyte extols these same ideas in her watercolor art , especially in her series Working South. These beautiful watercolor paintings show people of humble means--like mill workers, fishermen, farmers, and even a shoeshine are
