The principle of composition

Color durability

In addition to purple, I use a variety of colors in the normal conditions are durable. I said the normal conditions, the first is to comply with the protection of painting procedures, including the use of varnish water; the second is not to direct exposure to sunlight or by gas corrosion, not on the radiator or other heat source above, Of the people to wipe it. I tested all the colors (direct exposure to sunlight for three months), only purple some change, when it is thin or coated with other color tone color will fade. So the purple-red can only be used in sufficient concentration.

Make a color chart

In the art school, through a series of color charts to understand the various attributes of color, such as concentration, drying time, color, blending characteristics.

The first chart includes all ten pigments extruded directly from the hose. In a small piece of canvas on the separation of 50 small squares, each column 10 grid, each row of five cells. The top row consists of light cadmium yellow to black in order of ten colors. Then, in the following columns add white, the number of increments, the formation of five color levels. That is, the first column is a solid color, the second column is a lighter color, the third column is an intermediate tone between solid and white, the fourth column is another lighter color, and the bottom column is closer to white.

Then prepare nine charts, each with nine cells, five cells per row. In the second chart, the first color - light yellow cadmium and the remaining nine colors blending, mainly yellow, the first column of the first column is light cadmium yellow and yellow, the second cell is light cadmium yellow And cadmium red. The third grid is light cadmium yellow and rose soil red, and so on, until the black. Then, as the first chart, these mixtures are made into five shades. In the third chart is the main color of soil yellow, with the same method with the remaining nine colors blending. After ten charts are made, each one has a color as the main color.

The purpose of these charts is to understand all the colors and their five different hues that may be produced by the blending of these colors. The ten color charts can produce 455 mixtures in sequence. If additional colors are added to the ten basic colors, the resulting mixture may be more than 1600. The number can even be increased because the dark colors can be divided into nine hues rather than five hues.

The above-mentioned production process is very complicated, but when the chart is made, the color of knowledge is very rich. The whole production process took a few weeks, and when I was bored in the production, Professor Moss Bay encouraged me to say that the past (undoubtedly the nineteenth century, the twenties) Antwerp (Note) Some people have made 14,000 senior college A variety of colors do not color table!

If the color is hard to say, then the composition is almost impossible to talk about the. Partly because, for nearly a century, the so-called "modern movement", the majority of the composition of the traditional rules and laws seem to have been abandoned. As the "modern movement" has a long history and important status, I think it can be properly regarded as the college art of our time (I do not know how, "National Institute of Modern Art" in I am quite interesting, although some people think it Also not interesting).

In any case, in fact, some of the strict definition of composition, after all, does not exist, at least temporarily does not exist (I said composition refers to the painting, not the decorative pattern). One day, after two or three generations, they will surely be restored and praised, as is often the case. However, in the present, many of them have not been lost, at least I was not lost. In the painting to note the symmetry, symmetry, force symmetry, golden law, balance, rhythm, color, fade, diagonal, concentrated line, radiation, the same area, repeat parallel lines, and all other classical art Rules, laws and formulas, these are enough for you to do.

"Man - made" composition rules

When I faced a blank canvas, I would naturally consider the question of where to put something. Since I gave up some of the rules and concepts that I thought were "artificial", I felt that it was much easier to make decisions on composition . For me, the only rule for composition is that there are no rules. In the final analysis, my standard is very simple, is to see the final effect is not to make me like.

The composition can not be done by the so-called "rules of composition", but I would like to cite here some of the rules and concepts I call "artificial", which include the following: there are "good" tastes and " Bad "; some things are inherently beautiful, while others are ugly or mean; a sketch or painting must be in space is balanced; can not be arranged in the center of the rectangle anything; a picture of Each rectangle has its "aesthetic" center point, in a composition can not be only two elements, but to have three or five; if you can not avoid the two-hour , They must have a different size, shape, color or color; some lines and colors with joy, sadness, calm, tragedy, peace, excitement and other inherent nature.

These articles can continue to be enumerated, but they all share two things in common: first, that many artists have taken them very seriously (and still); second, they are outdated and unreasonable, despite their In some tough looks logical.

The principle of composition

Although the rules of composition vary with the times and the genre of art, the basic principles of these rules, including those developed by the Modern Movement and the classical school, are still irrelevant. In the painting, these principles first attract the attention of viewers, followed by the viewer attention to the important areas of the painting, and finally make it as long as possible to the viewer with a long time attractive. I thought it was legal to use any method or means to achieve this purpose.

Examining my own paintings and the paintings of the artists who have had a profound effect on them, I can see that they often have the advantage of several compositions. The first is the overall simplicity. Even the strongest composition (no matter how big or complicated) is basically simple.

What is relevant to simplicity is harmony - the use of a single drawing element to form a unified composition. In most cases, the use of light on the object (if there is only one light source) is a natural unity factor. Equally important in harmony is the unity of tone, the area of u200bu200bcolor, the formation of the overall lines, careful handling of the sidelines, as well as a dominant to all these factors cleverly combined.

The third principle is subtle. If the composition of a painting at a glance, it would not achieve the desired results. Like other elements of painting, such as color, form, and subject matter, composition is an integral part of the work as a whole. In the body painting (except purely decorative painting) each factor should be subordinate to the object temperament.

On the composition of the problem to speak more, you have to develop a number of rules, and I was against the rules. But last, I would like to point out that this is not to limit the possibility of any composition. In the simple, harmonious and subtle premise, there is room for innovation in the composition, can use the new method to observe. If possible, a painter should be in the composition from the "reliable", "real", "safe" box jumped out. Although the use of traditional old methods is not harmful (I also use), but try some new methods will never be lost.Color Durability | Making Color Charts | "Man-made" Composition Rules | The Principles of Composition

Claude Monet Biographie


Claude Monet était un fondateur et figure centrale du mouvement d'art du 19ème siècle connu sous le nom impressionnisme. Au début de sa carrière, Monet peint des paysages réalistes, mais après les années 1870, il se concentre plus sur l'effet de changer la lumière sur les objets du quotidien. Souvent, il a peint plusieurs études portant sur les mêmes sujets, des gares et des meules de foin à la ville de Londres, la cathédrale de Rouen et, le plus célèbre, nénuphars. Pendant la guerre franco-prussienne (1870-1871) Monet a fui Paris en Angleterre, où il se lia d'amitié avec Camille Pissarro, Auguste Renoir et d'autres figures centrales à l'impressionnisme. Il revient à Paris à la fin de la guerre, mais il a fini par s'installer à Giverny, où il a commencé une longue série de peintures de meules de foin (ou Meules) pendant les années 1890. Les tableaux impressionnistes de Monet sont bien vendus et son succès financier lui a permis d'acheter des biens à Giverny, où il a construit un grand jardin qui est devenu le sujet de sa série des Nymphéas (1906-26). Les scènes de Monet sont devenus depuis quelques-unes des peintures les plus reconnues dans le monde. Un de ses tableaux de lys vendus en 1998 pour environ 39 millions $, et en 2007, Waterloo Bridge, Temps Couvert vendu aux enchères pour plus de 35 millions $.

Absolut Blue Dog


Il est vingt-cinq ans que George Rodrigue dernier bu de l'alcool, * et pourtant il faisait partie de l'une des histoires les plus réussies dans l'histoire de la publicité, la promotion d'une vodka.

St._Peters_College_127.jpg



    «Même quand je l'ai fait boire,» rit l'artiste, "il a toujours été bourbon ou du vin. J'ai jamais aimé la vodka ".

Les raisons de Rodrigue pour participer à la campagne Absolut Art célèbre n'a rien à voir avec la promotion de l'alcool. Plutôt, comme la Campagne Xerox de 2000, il a trouvé l'art et la synthèse de la publicité tentant et, dès le début, impossible de passer.

Absolut Art aligné Rodrigue, par Michel Roux Carillon de l'importateur, avec la tradition de la publicité, il embrassa à l'Art Center College of Design dans les années 1960 et, plus important, avec la tradition de l'art a commencé en 1985 par Roux et Andy Warhol.

    «Ce fut l'amitié de longue date de Roux avec de renommée mondiale Andy Warhol qui a favorisé le génie créatif derrière la campagne publicitaire 'Absolut Warhol' 1985. Ce fut la première fois une campagne de marketing a été axée autour de l'art. "-du P.F. Roux site-

Pendant des années, même avant les peintures Blue Dog, Rodrigue a marché une ligne en ce qui concerne la commercialisation au sein de son art. Avec ses peintures Cajun, il a illustré des livres de cuisine, imprimé des milliers de affiches du festival, et produit Jolie Blonde Beer.

Avec le Blue Dog, il procède avec prudence, en évitant les produits et la production de masse de son art, la rationalisation des entreprises autrement commerciales, comme des affiches pour le Jazz & Heritage Festival de La Nouvelle-Orléans, des étiquettes pour Amuse Bouche vin, et les projets en cours d'édition avec une adhésion aux traditions de l'art.

Dans le cas d'Absolut Art, ce qui est arrivé par accident, comme Rodrigue peint pour une audience à la demande de son ami Paul Prudhomme lors de la fête de la ville natale du chef.

    "Quand j'ai rencontré Michel Roux," rappelle Rodrigue, «Je ne savais pas qui il était; il était juste quelqu'un d'autre dans la foule, sous une tente sur la place du village Opelousas. A la fin du week-end de 3 jours, je chargeais ma peinture, un triptyque de trois têtes de chien géant, dans mon camion, ayant aucune idée de ce qui allait se passer.

    "Michel Roux m'a approché dans le parking, dans l'espoir d'acheter les toiles pour Carillon importateurs comme l'œuvre d'art représentant Absolut Louisiane. Je savais que la campagne Warhol mais avait mes propres idées pour l'imagerie, la création d'un nouveau design au cours des prochaines semaines, l'incorporation d'un arbre d'alligator et de chêne avec le chien et une bouteille bleue, que j'ai inclus comme un vase pour des fleurs plutôt que d'un conteneur pour de l'alcool."

Absolut Louisiane semblait pleine page dans USA Today à l'automne 1992. Les quatre cents estampes vendus en quelques heures, et toutes les recettes au profit de l'American Cancer Society. Il a été salué à l'époque comme l'image la plus réussie de la campagne Statehood Absolut, avec la plupart des tirages vendus à 30.000 pieds, à partir de téléphones d'avion.

Suite à ce succès, Roux a commandé Absolut Rodrigue, photographié au sommet de ce poste, une image sélectionnée à plusieurs reprises dans presque tous les grands États-Unis et le magazine international à partir de 1993 et ​​pendant plusieurs années suivantes.

George Rodrigue art for sale et Roux sont devenus des amis au cours de cette campagne éclair, et quand Carillon importateurs lancé Libre Vodka en 1995, Roux approché à nouveau l'artiste. Ses trois chefs-d'œuvre était un naturel, combinant vodka bleu Roux avec Blue Dog de Rodrigue et Blue Boy de Gainsborough (1770), tout révélé sur toile derrière un rideau.

Bien que la vodka est tombé à travers, la peinture en première, avec le Blue Dog Hog et le livre de référence, Blue Dog, à l'automne de 1995, lors d'une exposition à Rodrigue Le temps est toujours maintenant Galerie de SOHO de New York. Je me souviens Trois chefs-d'œuvre apparaissant presque petit, mais tenant son propre, dans l'espace de type entrepôt rempli de géants toiles Blue Dog de Rodrigue, certains aussi grands que 8x12 pieds, ses premiers travaux à cette échelle.

L'œuvre de Rodrigue pour Michel Roux et Carillon importateurs est un point culminant de sa carrière. Les campagnes le placent dans une tradition artistique qui inclut non seulement Andy Warhol, mais aussi Keith Haring, Ed Ruscha, et bien d'autres, aboutissant à une exposition permanente et hommage à la fusion de l'art et de la publicité au Musée des esprits à Stockholm, Suède .
