I wanted to thank you for your online store, MisterArt.com, and particularly for the speedy processing and shipment of my order. I know that my order wasn't a large one, but as I am physically disabled...and the swiftness of your shipping is invaluable to me as it is very difficult for me to get out and "shop" as most others can.

Eugène Boudin

Eugène Boudin

(1824 - 1898)
Born: Honfleur, France
Style: Impressionism
Famous Works:
  • Princess Pauline Metternich on the Beach (c. 1865-67)
  • The Port of Camaret (1872)
  • Beach Scene, Trouville (1873)
Eugène Boudin is known as "the painter of beaches" and spent much of his lifetime at the beach resort in Trouville, on the coast of Normandy, painting scenes of Parisians on holiday. Boudin had a talent for observation, able to keenly observe and scrutinize those around him. Complimenting his ability to observe, Boudin possessed an insatiable passion for nature and a love of capturing the movements of people at play. Boudin was able to create paintings that came alive with his use of color; oceans seemed to roll, and the sand would flicker in the sun. His brushstrokes are loose and playful, and his paintings are laced with constellations of unmixed color taken straight from his palette, leading the eye around the canvas. Boudin's work did not focus on the traditional subjects of the landscape painters before him such as Nicolas Poussin or Claude Lorraine. Gone are the academic and religious subjects. Instead the gestures of the people collecting shells at the beach, the flickering light in the sky, and the sun on the sand are what Boudin concerned himself with painting. This creative new approach to the function of painting influenced and inspired Impressionists, including Claude Monet, who returned to this beach to paint what Boudin had years before him.

My clay was very useful, and I put it to work a lot; however, after a month, you could tell it was drying out. It's as hard as a rock now. I reccomend getting a smaller container to use in a small period of time!

I use this tape to hold the Mylar on the drafting table. It's a very good tape! It releases without leaving residue, and it is thin enough to let the rule slide on top. The tape doesn't break while unrolling, unlike many others. I highly recommend it.

Working with Pebeo products is so much fun and I love the different affects that can be achieved by using Prisme, Vitrail and glitter together. Cons: Some colors in the Pebeo Prisme line became thick and gooey after 4 to 6 months of storage. I attempted to thin the paint with paint thinner but it was still too thick. I wrote the Pebeo Customer Service Department and have yet to hear from them (it's been approximately one week now). Regardless, when I want to create something unique I will continue to use them.
