Photorealism from 1969 to Today

This generously illustrated book examines Photorealism in contemporary art from its roots in the late 1960s to today. Photorealism reintroduced straightforward representation into an art world dominated by Pop Art, Minimalism, Land Art, and Performance Art. Often misunderstood as being overtly traditional, artists at the vanguard of this important movement were trailblazers. Use of the camera as the foundation of painterly expression is common today, but in the 1970s Photorealists were embarking on a groundbreaking way of seeing and depicting the world. Drawing on major public and private collections, the book features works by the masters of Photorealism. Along with numerous illustrations, the book also includes an introductory essay by noted artist and writer Richard Kalina, and an in-depth essay by Terrie Sutlan, focusing on photorealistic watercolors and works on paper.

A Contemporary Approach to Painting People and Places in the Classical Tradition

Author: Mario Andres Robinson

Publisher: The Monacelli Press, LLC

ISBN: 1580934455

Category: Realism in art

Page: 176

View: 3151

"Robinson's approach to the medium of watercolor is primarily traditional. Many artists find watercolor difficult to control and are often disappointed with the results. The water meanders across the surface of the paper and, given the proper nuance by the artist's brush, it will reluctantly settle. The end result is the bright white of bouncing light contrasted with the liveliness of mysterious shadows. Robinson's method teaches artists to layer colors from light to dark and to focus on the highlighted areas first. Further, his "live in the moment" approach embraces watercolor's unpredictability as part of the process, the end result being a painting with intensity, spontaneity, and beauty. For the beginner, mid-level, or professional artist, Robinson introduces his unique working method that shifts the focus from the end result to the enjoyment of each stage of the painting process. Readers will learn how to start by stretching the paper to achieve a pristine surface; choose the right materials (brushes, palettes, paints, etc.); do a preliminary drawing; establish the subject's light, middle, and dark values with a tonal underdrawing; create symmetrical features and mass big shapes using intuition to achieve a more natural appearance; work through a monotone wash; explore water manipulation and work wet into wet for color mixing; finish up with a special drybrush technique; avoid common mistakes; set up an artist's studio; and establish yourself as a pro."
