J.G.VIBERT – Paintings of Painters Painting; Drawings of Draughts-Persons Drawing
Vernis de Vibert – Vibert’s Varnish for painting painting
Vibert also has a very good varnish named after him – Lefranc & Bourgouis, I think… Lovely shiny highly transparent varnish that makes the oil painting look wet & fresh. Ages well, I sometimes use it. Good degree of elasticity. I like to imagine that he made the recipe, like Isabey made the brushes, like Cotman made the watecolours… generic names or historical fact?
YOU ARE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE IN AN INTERNET COLLABORATIVE PROJECT….
Paintings of Painters Painting : Drawings of Draughts-Persons Drawing
All levels welcome, from genius to absolute beginner.
I thought it might be fun to gather together a few of the images from ‘Le Musée Imaginaire’ (André Malraux). Images of paintings of painters painting or drawings of draughts-persons drawing. Painting holidays or painting workshops are great occasions to practice this subject.
Do you have an artwork of this type of subject? I’m going to create a static web page for these when I’ve done a ’round-up’. If you’d like to be included, why not send me a web-ready image (72 dpi – 500 pixels largest dimension) (to me at blog365-at-artists-atelier.com), and I’ll include it. Don’t forget to tell me your URL if you want a backlink. It could be fun to get all these images together. Pourquoi pas?
All levels welcome. Preferably your own work. Ongoing Project, no deadline. Please spread the word & pass on the invitation! Everyone welcome.
