Styles & Periods
Etruscan Art

Etruscan civilization, seated on the Italian peninsula around 700 B.C., borrowed much of its culture from the Greeks before it. Alphabets and populations were shared with Greece, and a flowering of writing resulted. The Etruscans were powerful people, with a territory that extended from Naples to present-day northern Italy. Bronze tombs characterize Etruscan art. The first tombs were bronze urns with heads in the shape of the deceased and great mounds covering stone rooms. Later tombs, from the height of Etruscan civilization, were virtually simultaneous in date to the art of the Aegean. During this monumental period, figurative tombs in terracotta were made. Funerary chambers held murals and beautiful tombs with couples carved on the top. The colors of these murals are glorious and show figures of musicians, fisherman, flocks of birds and schools of fish. The tombs are indeed resplendent, and show the belief of the funerary site holding both body and soul. Etruscans were not only masters of the afterlife, but also of urban planning. Romans emulated their examples and learned how to build bridges and aqueducts from the Etruscans.

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."

As a cartoonist, I prefer the Strathmore 300 series smooth surface bristol. It works well in achieving a smooth, even ink line whether using pen or brush. And most importantly, it is more economical than either the 400 series, or 500 series bristol.

I absolutely love these markers. The colors are beautiful. They are easy to use as well. These are a good price too.
