Styles & Periods
Ashcan School

American art before World War I was dominated by realism, and no group of artists better evolved this tradition than the Ashcan School. The loosely affiliated group was actually a collection of artists working in New York City, who fed upon and depicted the vitality of the bustling metropolis. Many of the artists painting in the style came from journalistic backgrounds, where they developed skills in making quick, loose sketches of cities imbued with energy. While not a social movement, the painters did depict the city in a literal manner that had never seen before, making headway in developing an American style of subject. Specifically, in 1908, painter Robert Henri founded The Eight. This group was loosely connected with the broad Ashcan School, and included members John Sloan, Everett Shinn, William Glackens, George Luks, Ernest Lawson, Maurice Prendergast and Arthur Davies. These artists were rejected by the National Academy of Design, and therefore mounted their own revolutionary show in New York. By denouncing the rigid constraints of academy painting, the Ashcan School, including The Eight, forged new ground in the idea of artists choosing their own subject to immortalize.

This paper is really nice stuff - I like it for charcoal + chalk pencils and black + white ink pens. I wish you guys carried the 5.5 x 8.5 size too, though!

I love these pallets. I have one for my warm yellows, 1 for cool yellows and you can write on the 2 big wells with the colors that are above ;if you use a woodless graphite pencil, it won't rub off easily. This way I know the exact color and color bias for my red, blues, yellows, violets, greens, and oranges. I find I only need one for my white, black/grey tints and earth tone water colors. For stains, I clean off with olive oil then follow with soap and water so oil doesn't get into my watercolor pigments.

In addition to my first review about krylon fusion clear u v protection ; the directions say that if you use a krylon base that the clear will go on white and after 24 hours it will turn clear . Well 4 days later my plastic gun stock is still a pretty pearl white ; not the neat camo paint job I intended . I gave it a far sight more than 24 hours ; I guess it's back to the drawing board !!!!!
