    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.

    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.

    Now those are some wicked skills. They rather look like photographs not paintings.
