    Kevin,

    I am never bored when it comes to color. : )

    I find Munsell more useful for imaginative work. It is a great tool for changing and inventing color relationships. I have yet to find...

    t

    Can you explain this, Kevin. And if true, what would be the other ways to think about color? In other words, what non linear relationships can be made and how would this be described and...

    Anid,

    You have to be clear what you mean by tints and shades. These are painters terms. Color comprises hue, value and chroma. So the discussion has to be whether one element can be used...

    I should have hue and chroma alone, without value. Color comprises all three.

    It seems that in the late 19th century, some artists preferred lighting that would flatten the form and emphasize...

    So what he is saying is that using a restricted value pattern is the key to strong paintings.

    If this is the case, then I agree partly. However, I have seen full valued paintings that are quite...

    Well, I edited the book. You can get images from the Victoria and Albert and the Goupil Museum. At least this was how it was done before. The Bargue book itself is copyrighted. So, not such a...

    For long poses, most studios simply mark the model's feet and anything else they can with tape. Then, its up to one or two spotters on the sides, one of which could be the class moderator, to...

    I partly agree with this. However, realism has been used for political ends for centuries, to affect the perception of the underclass as in Murillo or as subtle to overt propaganda as in the...

    Probably the choir is small. First, I am not sure that the choir, or audience, is any larger for conceptual art. How appealing are installations; that is, does the audience approve of them...

    I am a purist until it gets in the way of what I want to paint. That is, not using photographs can become an impediment and compromise expression. Yet, biases happen in every movement, and...

    It can cost well over 25,000.00 and several years. In the 19th century, many had a lot of practice doing large scale works. Today, the training is rare. I think even illustrators are teaching...

    Likely the reason not too many painters do large narratives is that its very time consuming and expensive. Very. Its also for the masochist set. With a film, you have a lot of help from...

    Its hard to know the causes...you have stated, more or less, the symptoms.

    In other words, disdain for Victorian poses was the result, not the cause.

    It just a very complex scenario that has...

    Even in 1985 the ever self-satisfied Grace Glueck could write about Bouguereau's A Soul Brought to Heaven:

    If this isn't disdain, or rather hate, I am not sure what love would be.

    It is important to see what hues values and chromas your pigments will create.
    Given fewer pigments, in general, one will have a smaller color space.

    You mean, a less potent form of mineral spirits. (according to Gamblin) Turpentine is another subject.
