Hard-Edge Painting

Hard-Edge painting arose in the 1960s in opposition to figurative and geometrical art and as a reaction to Abstract Expressionism. It is included in the new direction of painting of the 1960s that is generally called Post-Painterly Abstraction. Hard-Edge painting is characterized by its flat, broad fields of color. The forms in Hard-Edge painting are few, and are crisply defined by sharp contours. By reducing the amount of forms in a painting and eliminating the presence of a defined light source, Hard-Edge painters were able to negate depth, object and figure, thereby giving the painting – that is the stretcher and canvas itself – the distinction of being the object. This can be interpreted as total unity of the picture plane. Some of the most successful Hard-Edge painters include Agnes Martin, Ad Reinhardt, Ellsworth Kelly and Kenneth Noland.

This is not only the best eraser I've ever used, it's the ONLY eraser I'll ever use, despite the best sales pitches in art shops to get me to change. Cleans superbly, soft to use, no discoloration on the paper and cheap as chips...I don't believe it has a competitor

I Iove these pencils. I would like to purchase the metallic ones.

I've used Pebeo's Vitrea 160 paints for years. I love this stuff. When buying these paints, remember to get the thinner too. I use a stiff stencil brush with a dabbling motion to get even coverage. If bubbles appear, the paint is too thick or you've added too much water, but don't fret just let it dry a little and brush over it again. Have fun!!!
