New School Color - Casey Klahn
excellent! You take this pinterest stuff seriously! I love all your categories. Well done!
Thank you, Celeste! The trouble with me is I'm always thinking. But, I really enjoy this simplicity one - I think it informs the art ideas.
Casey, what to you is simplicity in art? It is about the process of the making/creating, the theme or the instant appreciation by the viewer? I have enjoyed your simplicity board very much, but it raised this question for me.
I have the same questions, Paula! This board about simplicity is on my mind when I go to the easel daily. The first test for me is: is this design and composition irreducible? That means, among probably many things: can I take something away and have the same statement?John F. Carlson did say, (loose quote) I don't believe a painting has ever failed by being too simple.
So, simplicity, to you, has to do with the mind of the maker. You inspire to do a post on the question what simplicity means to artists. Your use of autumn-colours is outstanding!
I look forward to that post, Paula. Many thanks. I really wanted to work the seasonal theme, and wondered if I could - I appreciate the comments!
I hope one day you will do a blogpost on the meaning of simplicity in art too. Maybe more artist could do that. It would be interesting to read what others think and feel about this theme.
I am writing the lesson for my blog, Pastel Workshop, on simplicity right now. It may take a few days to complete, though. I am in the studio painting daily, and time is also a dear treasure.Thanks for following here and I am very happy you share the same interest in simplicity, Paula. As a matter of fact, I have some artworks in the studio that are about complexity, and I have to put them aside because I am also driven right now by simplicity - trying to do better at it. Weird problem!
