    Post some images that inspire you.

    I thought I'd do this thread since I dont see one around - but post some images, painting, whatever that inspire you:

    The Gulf Stream by Winslow Homer - I dont know what it is about it, but this painting has always scared the shit outta me. I know its got to do with the sharks, I'm pretrified of the sea, but its one of those rare paintings that actually makes me fee dread.

    Post some images that inspire you.

    he really catches the feel when you are out on the sea. The kinda bright sky but also dull and grey. It´s hard to explain.


    edit: no I didn´t post a winslow homer because magic did it, I just really like this because I´ve spent quite some time at the sea and such.

    Homer's ability to take watercolors to an ethereal level is amazing, he camputers the luminosity of water so amazingly well.

    Post some images that inspire you.

    Lady Agnew of Lochnaw by John Singer Sargent.

    This painting is in the National Gallery of Scotland, in Edinburgh. I've been there a few times, every single time, this is the painting that most stands out. I can sit in front of it for ages and just look... and look... so good.

    Post some images that inspire you.

    The Apotheosis of the Slavs, by Alphonse Mucha

    Infact all of the Slav Epic totally rules me. Whats really impressive about this and the other paintings of the Epic is their size. This painting is like 15 feet tall, and some of the other 19 paintings are like 20 feet tall and 30 feet across.

    also

    California, by George Inness

    Inness' landscapes do something to me. I love the atmosphereic quality to many of them. They seem less like pictures of a place and time and more like memories or dreams

    anyway...theres my contribution

    BTW more of both of these artists can be found at www.artrenewal.com (infact both these pics came from there)

    Anyway, Rembrandt's gear has always faccinated me, I loved his self portraits, his technique os Chiaroscuro is amazing.

    Yay.. good ol Dali.

    Post some images that inspire you.

    and although this is quite a new piece and such.. not so traditional as the others but i really really enjoy looking at it.

    The designs looks excellent, the colours are very lush and lighting very good.

    From the up and coming FF XII....

    Magic Man :Jesus Christ - what medium is that? Oil?
    Actually the book I have says they are egg tempera...Unfortunatly that picture of the Apotheosis is really dark, there's a whole 'nother batch of figures under the large figure's right arm backlit by a peach colored glow...and an image of jesus behind the large figure All of the other paintings of the Epic are impressive as well, but I've had some trouble finding good pics of them....I may scan some from this big Mucha book I have, just to share.

    If I had to guess, I'd say Beksinski.

    Anyway, another one - this is by Yerka.

    Great thread idea!

    Magicman, Dinotopia is so cool, I devoured that book as a kid, still have it close by whenever I feel down and wanna look at Dino's, I love that book.

    I love Mucha:
