Scrolling through your blog, it's a pleasure to see such strong landscape work.

Marc R. Hanson said...

Nathan... Thank you for your comment. Viewing your work on your blog, Land Sketch, is part of a ritual that I take often when 'artistic nourishment' is required. Gouache is in the blood of any artist who attended Art Center. I haven't taken it anywhere near the distance as you have since those days, but I am still captivated by it and put it into service from time to time. Thanks again. Marc :)

And I find myself inspired by both your blogs, Nathan and Marc.

A blog post where Nathan Fowkes and Marc Hanson are discussing landscape painting. It's like watching Jefferson and Madison discuss the Constitution.
By the way, what are the dimensions on the painting on this post?

Marc R. Hanson said...

Thanks Andy.

Kevin you crack me up...but thanks.
This painting is one of the 5x7's that I did last April for my marathon. I am reposting all of them each day of the month, on the corresponding day they were done last year, on Facebook. Are you on Facebook? If not, you should join and waste some time there like a lot of other artists are doing now. There is a lot of information being shared there by a lot of artists from Jeremy Lipking and Nathan Fowkes, to Nancy Guzik and William F. Reese.

I hope you fill all of your workshop spots and have a great year! Love the one a day series.

Often, if the skill is being used in a common or practical way, people will consider it a craft instead of oil painting. Likewise, if the skill is being used in a commercial or industrial way, it may be considered commercial art instead of fine art. On the other hand, crafts and design are sometimes considered applied art. Some art followers have argued that the difference between fine art and applied art has more to do with value judgments made about the art than any clear definitional difference.However, even fine art often has goals beyond pure creativity and self-expression. The purpose of works of art may be to communicate ideas, such as in politically, spiritually, or philosophically motivated art; to create belstaff jackets (see aesthetics); to explore the nature of perception; for pleasure; or to generate strong emotions. The purpose may also be seemingly nonexistent.
