Current picture of the month on the Reading Guild of Artist www site.


The Art Class

I have chosen “The Art Class” as my favourite painting of the month as Belinda has used simple shapes and blocks of colour to paint her figures and the scene as a whole. The blue under-painting is a good choice of colour as it gives the room a sense of light and helps the other blocks of colour stand out. For me the picture also tells a story and I want to look more into the picture to see what each of the artists may be painting, especially the lady at the forefront! The use of confident brush strokes also prevents the painting from looking overworked.
