a project : Paintings of Painters Painting : Drawings of Draughts-Persons Drawing
YOU ARE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE IN AN INTERNET COLLABORATIVE PROJECT…. Following on from a previous post Painters, Draughts-Persons & The Educative Value of Demonstrations I thought it’d be fun to gather a few of the images from ‘Le Musée Imagainaire’ (André Malraux). Images of paintings of painters painting or drawings of draughts-persons drawing. All levels, from genius to absolute beginner. 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 – please don’t jam up my letterbox with heavy files!!), and I’ll include it. 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 & invite your friends.
