    I just discovered this site, and luckily I searched the forums before starting a new thread. Yay for saving bandwidth! And yay for bumping this great link! However, boo for having a thread about EVERY N. C. WYETH PAINTING! without any images in it! Luckily, the man with the IMG-tags is here..















    And it wasn't all swashbuckling action either:





    Just insanely good...

    I can't help noticing that at the age 14 he was imitating the idiosyncrasies of the period's cartoons, just like now kids imitate anime.

    The internet has ruined my life and interpretations of things.

    Wow, this is the first time I've seen Wyeth paintings, where have you been all my life.






    Currently looking for work!

    WHERE are Treasure Island and Kidnapped?? Seriously, this thread needs more fog and waves and gnarly dudes fighting to the death...

    (Okay, some David Balfour snuck in there as well. Call it Kidnapped by extension.)

    Aah, I've always loved that one with the blind man. It's just so awesomely clever to have his shadow touch the hat!

    What makes his work stand out for me is the STUNNING composition, apart from everything else that is!

    I think his sense of color and drama are the best, and we can't have an NC thread without boats.

    One thing about being in Portland Maine is that we have a very extensive collection of N C and Andrew Wyeth's work in our art museum. Here are a few of of my favorite N C Wyeth paintings we keep.

    That last one with the soldier and the horse is quite possibly my favourite painting by N. C. Wyeth. It's so.... so.. SIMPLE.

    Always look to see what you can leave out of a picture and yet have it all there. The more you take out, the more vital it becomes. ~ Harvey Dunn

    When you add “interest” to a picture you take interest from it. Let it be an expression rather than a description. It’s simple — just leave everything out but what you need. Or else this way: — express your idea with only what is necessary. ~ Harvey Dunn

    The idea is not to “simplify” a picture. Keep your thoughts about it, simple. ~ Harvey Dunn

    Harvey Dunn, Henry Peck, N.C. Wyeth, and Clifford Ashley in Wilmington Circa 1908...

    All the Treasure Island pieces are so rich with story without ever having read the book. Just hooks you in.

    Awesomely inspirational thread.

    Here's some rare Wyeth... His sea monster character... which was also used for his Submarine Grill murals. The murals are assumed lost and some of the images of them below are hidden on the museum server and not viewable, so I thought I'd post 'em up.
