Styles & Periods
Color-Field Painting

Color Field painting emerged as part of a new direction in art, Post-Painterly Abstraction, that arose in the 1950s as a reaction to Abstract Expressionism. Instead of the dense, painterly brushstrokes favored by the Abstract Expressionists, Color Field painters developed open, abstract compositions. Broad expanses of color were used to give extreme clarity to paintings, and the texture of the paint was undermined to emphasize hues and shapes. The range of artists working in this manner is broad, and includes Sam Francis, Helen Frankenthaler, Barnett Newman, and Mark Rothko. Rothko’s work centers on the impact of broad shapes and expressive colors. While these paintings are formally simple, their expression is emotionally and psychologically complex. Color-Field painting’s ties to Abstract Expressionism and its influence on Minimalism make it an important bridge between the two styles.

This is an excellent watercolor set to start to work with. I've used this mainly for portrait and nude paintings. Sometimes I'd mix it with a white paste to create my own custom gouache. The beauty of the set is that they are in tubes, so mixing and making your own mixes is very, very easy to do.i have been using this set up for almost 5 years now, and I always come back to this set for my creativity.

These pencils are GREAT for sketching. The fit in the hand is far superior over round pencils and they don't go rolling off when you set them down. Unlike other thick pencils I've used, the graphite in these is very smooth - none of these nasty chunks that scratch up the paper or glue seams that fail, busting the lead apart and wasting half your pencil. By far,this is my sketching pencil of choice. Oh, and to sharpen, the wife gave me a makeup sharpener - its plenty wide enough, cheap and easy to get.
