I received my order today. I wanted to write and say that it arrived in excellent condition. I was a bit worried about ordering my supplies online but am 100% satisfied with my order. All items I was looking for were available, and packing was very good and the shipping was fast. I will be telling all of my artist friends about this site. Thank you.

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 pen is an essential part of sketching I do for design clients. It has the perfect tip, almost brush-like, and the water color ink doesn’t react with the art markers I use with it. Also the price at Mister Art is the best!

I have just finished two of the animals, a cat and DO#1904, and DO#1117. I traced these onto some MultiMedia paper. I don't want to do it right on the paper as I may want to do another with several different ones. Love it. I want to purchase the rest of the animal books. Thank you for having them!
