Search engine for art lovers

http://www.wikipaintings.org

I stumbled apon this site the other day called Wikipainting. It needs to feature more artists to succeed but it does have potential. I enjoyed looking at the Alphonse Mucha and Egon Schiele pages; make sure you click on the , ‘All artworks’ tab to see of the complete archive of the artist.

but I like it! 
Rockin’ JellyBean who lives in Japan (I think) is known for wearing Mexican wrestling masks and having a babe on each arm. He also has a Surf-Rock band called Jackie and the Cedrics.

Developing my drawing style

http://www.klimt.com

I am currently scanning my life drawings from 2011 which I hope will soon be published here on this blog. While looking through all the studies I decided I need to stylise my illustrations to give them a more accomplised feel. As I like Art Neuveau so much I plan to try this style in the near future and see what developes. Artists I like are: Alphonse Mucha and  Gustav Klimt. More modern Artists I admire in this Art Neaveau style are: Audrey Kawasaki and Adam Huges

Audrey Kawasaki



http://www.audrey-kawasaki.com
Audrey Kawasaki’s work is both Manga and Art Nouveau inspired, her technical skills are top-class. I find the work both erotic and innocent, the fact that a lot of the paintings are directly on wood add a lot of warmth to the compositions.

Audrey updates her online journal frequently with new work, pieces in progress, information about shows and more. Click here to visit Aud’s Journal

Life drawing at the Museum of Dance – Stockholm

http://www.dansmuseet.nu

There is life drawing at the Museum of Dance in Stockholm this term. I have never been but I intend to give it a try. It must be great fun drawing dancers in classic poses or even trying to catch them while in motion. I have copied the information from their website and placed it below.

Mexican artist: Rene Almanza

http://www.renealmanza.net

I found this artist’s work to be quite interesting, it’s provocative sometimes and it even reminds me of an ex-girlfriend’s drawing style, Melanie Stickland. His name is Rene Almanza and he is from Mexico.
