Sure it’s a play on words but I just couldn’t resist.
This is a website that is FOR the Artist. I stumbled onto this site this summer and had it in my mind I would give it a try. This site is for the artists to showcase their paintings and get feedback on their work.
I was seriously wanting to get some feedback on some of my latest work in painting and this is the best place I have found so far.
Michelangelo was adament in his time that he considered himself first a sculptor before he was a painter. According to Art History he never wanted the commission of the Sistine Chapel but the Pope insisted that he do this job or risk future jobs he was negotiating.
You see, I love all art. I really do and when I set out to try a new medium or technique-I just dive right in-no life saver vest or anything. However, I have been doing photography for so many years, it comes so naturally for me, I don’t even think twice when I have my camera in my hand, I click away.
As far as drawing and painting, I taught myself to draw through much trial and error back in 2008. When I first started drawing I really believed I was only capable of drawing little stick figures. As I continued on with this I got better and better. Charcoal is a favorite of mine, I love working with the different tones and values that charcoal as messy as it is allows. Painting is much more new to me than drawing and taking pictures. So yes I wanted to see what others, artists like myself thought about my work. And I found this great website:
Paintings I love – Brigitte Cadena that offers me just what I needed.
If you are an artist and you want to get some good constructive feedback for your work or new pieces, this is the place to join. The people are friendly and encouraging and you will be among some wonderful talented artists from all over the world.
