Alexei Savrasov: A collection of 169 paintings (HD) Description: " Alexey Kondratyevich Savrasov is one of the Russia’s most remarkable landscape painters, the originator of the so-called ‘mood landscape’. Savrasov was born into the family of a merchant. He began to draw early; in 1838 he enrolled as a student at the Moscow School of Painting and Sculpture (graduated in 1850), and immediately began to specialize in landscape painting. His efforts of the 1850s reveal the difficult process he was going through trying to overcome the academic tradition in depicting landscape. The Russian public liked his lyrical landscapes like View of the Kremlin from the Krimsky Bridge in Inclement Weather (1851) and gradually he made his name. In 1852, the artist traveled to the Ukraine where he produced a series of views of its rolling steppes The Steppe in Daytime (1852), which reflect the various aspects of his favorite subject, wide-open spaces. By the invitation of the Grand Duchess Maria Nikolayevna, the President of the Russian Academy of Arts, who commissioned several works from Savrasov, he moved to the shores of the Gulf of Finland in the neighborhood of St. Petersburg. Though the scenery there was alien to his spirit, he was able to find some innovations never seen in academic landscape painting before. In 1854, for his pictures Seashore in the Neighborhood of Oranienbaum and View in the Neighborhood of Oranienbaum (1854) he was awarded the title of Fellow of the Academy. In 1857, Savrasov became a teacher in the Moscow School of Painting and Sculpture, from which he had graduated. His best disciples Isaac Levitan and Constantin Korovin always remembered their teacher with admiration and gratefulness. In the 1860s, he traveled to England and Switzerland. His introduction to English landscape painting was most influential. The best works of the period include View of the Swiss Alps from Interlaken (1862), Rustic View (1867), Rafts (1868). The Rooks Have Come (1871) is considered by many critics to be the highest point in Savrasov’s artistic career. Using a common, even trivial, episode of birds returning home, and an extremely simple landscape, Savrasov managed to show very emotionally the transition of nature from winter to spring. It was a new type of lyrical landscape painting, called later by critics ‘the mood landscape’. The picture made his name famous. In the late 1870s and early 1880s there were many good landscapes, though early spring in the countryside remained the favorite subject of the artist. The most notable are A Winter Road (1870s), Country Road (1873), View of the Moscow Kremlin. Spring (1873), Spring Thaw. Yaroslavl. (1874), Rainbow (1875), A Provincial Cottage. Spring. (1878), Landscape with a Rainbow (1881), Sea of Mud (1894). The misfortunes in his personal life, may be dissatisfaction with his artistic career were the reason of his tragedy – he became an alcoholic. All attempts of his relatives and friends to help him were in vain. The last years of his life Savrasov led the life of a pauper, wandering from shelter to shelter. Only the doorkeeper of the School of Painting and Pavel Tretyakov (the founder of the Tretyakov Gallery) were present at his funeral." --- SUBSCRIBE: www.youtube.com/c/LearnFromMasters?sub_confirmation=1 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LearnFromMasters/ Google+: https://plus.google.com/+LearnFromMasters Contact: LearnFromMasters01@gmail.com --- Thanks for all support!
Painting a copy from a Seago. Just to learn from te masters! Never sell or post someone else work if it is your own! Edward Brian (Ted) Seago RBA ARWS RWS (31 March 1910 – 19 January 1974) was an English artist who painted in both oils and watercolours. Seago died of a brain tumour in London on 19 January 1974. In his will he requested that one third of his paintings currently in his Norwich studio were to be destroyed. There remain about 19,000 water colors and 300 oil paintings worldwide. I hear a lot of times, Use the backside but some papers don't have a good backside. and the point is! I destroy copies, because I see a lot of copies everywhere. And that is not good! Use the backside, make a collage, make bookmarks. I know! But this is a example! I have a lot of framed work with on the backside a watercolour! So Yes I use backsides. (with the right paper)

I saw a photo on Twitter, made by my good friend Claire Hill, so I asked if I could use it for a painting and Claire said yes have a go! The scene is excellent material to make a sort of Edward Wesson painting from. I admire Mr Wesson a lot and have almost all his books. I paint on a quarter sheet Bockingford 200lb made by StCuthbertsmil. Its really a nice paper to paint on! The 200Lb was specially made for Edward Wesson it seems, he painted on 140lb, but that goggled a bit so he asked the factory if they could make it heavier and they made it, and thats why we still have it today! The finished painting can be seen here on flickr https://flic.kr/p/252j3Qx Edward Wesson Colours used Raw SIenna Alizarin Crimson Ultramarine Blue Winsor Blue or Phtalo Blue New Gamboge Burnt Sienna and Burnt Umber Light Red I use Rembrandt pigments, I am sure Wesson used W&N or Daler Rowney! Brushes I used some brushes here that I normally seldom use. The flat oxhair brushes are made for lettersetting art. I usually have two red sable brushes a 6 and a 12 Da Vince Maestro Tobolski Kolinsky Three W&N Squirrel wash brushes I used them a lot so I cannot see the size anymore I have a huge Squirrel brush I seldom use and that is a size 10, so my guess would be I have a 2, 4 and 6 size squirrel brush. Also found under Petit Gris Blue Squirrel brushes are the best, but also the most expensive! http://www.winsornewton.com/uk/shop/brushes/water-colour/professional-water-colour-squirrel-brushes/pure-squirel-pointed-wash-brush-pure-squirrel-pointed-wash-brushes-size-10-brush-5250310 And some riggers for detail, size 0, 1 and 4 W&N Sceptre Gold Paper I use a variety of papers, but in most cases StCuthbertsmill paper, like Bockingford, Millford and Saunders Waterford. when I do a style I try to use the painters choice! (when available)

Edward Seago: A collection of 77 paintings (HD)
Description: "Edward Seago enjoyed the position as one of the most popular British artists of the 20th century. He began painting at the age of seven when he was confined to his room with a heart condition. Later, fully recovered, he would study with Bernard Priestman.
He became a successful illustrator in the 1930's, working for, among others, England's poet laureate of the sea, John Masefield. After serving with the royal engineers in WWII, he would spend the remainder of his life painting and writing. He was an avid sailor which is evident in the accuracy and flavor of his sea paintings.
Exhibiting widely, his famous one man shows at Colnaghi's would usually sell out on the first day. People were known to line up by 6 am to secure the painting of their choice. Examination of Seago's work shows the influence of the Dutch 17th century school and British artists such as John Constable. His two greatest influences however were the French impressionist Eugene Boudin and American painter James McNeil Whistler."
