This Month in Art History

March, 1953 - Vincent van Gogh was born in Groot-Zundert, the Netherlands. Van Gogh's troubled life, fraught with depression and psychological unrest, would only be eclipsed by his prolific career. The artist was an innovator, and his influence on the trajectory of modern art is undeniable.

The soul thrives on art, and MisterArt.com is here to help your soul experience as much as possible!

The soul cannot thrive in the absence of art. If you don't want the pleasure of art, you are not human; and if you are not human, you don't have a soul.

- Thomas Moore

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!

Great for illustrations!!!

I really like these pencils. I accidentally found a technique that really exemplified the "magic" in them. Rolling the pencil to preserve the point and coloring in a circular motion really brings out the random beauty of the colors in coloring a small petaled flower like a zinnia. I have colored an entire picture with one pencil and gotten raves about it. The biggest drawback I am experiencing is the lack of tutorials to help people understand how to use them. I have seen critiques where the artist did not have a clue how to use them. I have also seen a Russian tutorial that shows a lot of blending techniques that really show some extraordinary effects. I am currently exploring their use for backgrounds. I like the pencils and find them a challenge to explore the "magic."
