I know, it’s 1 hour 29 mn but… (there always is one :)) for those artists out there wanting to be inspired by fascinating landscape where every second of the movie is another masterpiece… this is your chance to grab and watch 🙂
I put my laptop on pause and rapidly sketched 3 landscapes of Namibia’s desert so as to remember shapes and colors for my future projects.
Here they are. Do you like them?

Hi everyone!

I am trying hard to keep away from posting but couldn’t resist sharing this last drawing inspired by the long warm days ending off in magical scenery…

Enjoy the next half of this month, it goes quicker than we think 🙂

Unique Film of Pierre-Auguste Renoir Painting (1919) Including two others of A.Rodin & C.Monet


I found this rare piece, a pure treasure from the blogger http://ladonasmusicstudio.com/ and couldn’t resist the urge to share it with all of you!
I added two other very short films of two monstrous artists… Auguste Rodin and Claude Monet
Enjoy it 🙂

Pierre-Auguste Renoir – Filmed Painting at Home (1919)

This is unique footage of the great Impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919).

He is seen at home, working on a canvas.

I’m just astonished it exists – I never imagined I’d see film of him painting – you even get a sense of his method of applying the oil to the canvas.

Also present in this footage are Renoir’s youngest son Claude, 14, who stands by to arrange the palette and place the brush in his father’s hand, and Sacha Guitry, the man who made this film in 1915 and who appears midway through the film sitting down and talking with the artist.

Enjoy!

Auguste Rodin – Filmed Sculpting in his Studio (1915)

Published on 26 Aug 2013
This is unique film of the father of modern sculpture, Auguste Rodin (1840-1917), working in his studio in Paris in 1915.

What is particularly interesting in the various pieces of footage is seeing — close up – the artist’s process with marble.

There are four segments of film:

[1] The artist walking up and down the steps of a monumental columned building, and inspecting the structure

[2] Rodin posing top-hatted in a garden

[3] The sculptor coming out of the then derelict C18 HĂ´tel Biron, which the artist used as his studio

[4] Rodin sculpting in his studio

Enjoy!

Claude Monet – Filmed Painting Outdoors (1915)

Published on 26 Aug 2013
This is unique film of French Impressionist painter Claude Monet (1840-1926), painting outdoors, ‘en plein air’, in his garden at Giverny.

The footage is in two segments.

Firstly we see the artist outdoors talking to a gentleman.

Then we see Monet painting a water lily-padded pond, a subject for which he is most famed.

Enjoy!

The Bloomberg Commission: Giuseppe Penone: Spazio di Luce (Tree artist)


I can’t believe the serendipity! Full swing into my tree project I run smack into the article of a cultural magazine on an artist I hadn’t heard of before, Giuseppe Penone, who’s art is all around trees 🙂
I then started to research on You tube for a video that meets the criteria of an interesting blog with a certain level of quality… The appropriate language… Short and stimulating so as to keep the attention of the viewers.
I came up with this and hope you’ll enjoy this unusual form of art.

Published on Sep 4, 2012
Over the past 45 years, Italian artist Giuseppe Penone has examined our relationship to nature. For the latest Bloomberg Commission, he has created a twelve metre bronze cast of a tree, with a radiant gold-leaf interior, which spreads across the columned Whitechapel Gallery.

My liberty-Whispers of nature- Lyrics 1989 Adjusted January 2013


my liberty

my liberty

I hope you will enjoy these lyrics composed and adjusted. It took me ages to figure out some of the functions of Windows 8 but I kept running back and forth between my dying computer as a last resort and this one. I still can’t download photos from ” sky drive ” or the computer files to our good, old and faithful media 🙂

Enjoy this and let me know what you think of it, until then, I hope I’ll have a better knowledge of this ” headache “.

My liberty
————

I note
Melancholy
In your
Voice.

Don’t part.
Your heart
Is mine
Since acridine (1)

Stay with me
My liberty
Won’t lock you
Chain you

In my heart.
Temptation strong.
Won’t go along
To a game

So insane!
Be free
My love
To see

To be
To dance
Take
A chance

Come back
And laugh
Don’t worry
We’ll live and see

Forgive me
My jealousy
Don’t part from me…

My liberty!

Found in coal tar.
And in 1890 first isolated

I truly appreciate and thank you for the trust you have shown me in these past four
months by becoming followers.

When I started to blog I never dreamed of reaching any numbers. I did not know anything
about it, therefore had no ambitions linked to it and still do not have any, I am always
surprised when I see the numbers adding up…

Now, I have reached 4,354 views, 464 comments… I do not know how it came about. I am
truly thankful and happy my work is of interest to a generous, kind, very artistically
talented and gifted crowd.

Thank you again 🙂

Symmetric was plain fun to paint. See those colors take place, blending with their neighboring one or bringing out the quality of their color.
Let me know what you think!
