Karl Wilhelm Diefenbach: A collection of 60 paintings (HD) Description: "Diefenbach was born at Hadamar, then part of the Duchy of Nassau. He was a pioneer of the naturist and the peace movements. His country commune, Himmelhof, in Ober Sankt Veit near Vienna (1897–1899) was one of the models for the reform settlement Monte Verità in Ascona. His ideas included life in harmony with nature and rejection of monogamy, turning away from any religion (although he was a follower of theosophy), and a vegetarian diet. When his commune went bankrupt, he moved to Capri and stayed there for until his death in 1913. As a painter, Diefenbach was an independent representative of Symbolism. There has been a museum of his works in Certosa di San Giacomo on Capri since 1974." --- MUSIC: Kevin MacLeod - Long Note Three Long Note Three by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1100424 Artist: http://incompetech.com/ 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 SUPPORT MY WORK AT: https://www.patreon.com/LearnFromMasters LIST OF ARTISTS already posted on LearnFromMasters: https://goo.gl/hri4HE --- Thank you so much for your support!
If you have a question for me, post it in the comments below. I'll answer as many as I can in the next episode. Here are links to each question answered in this video: 00:36 — Do you think painting loosely surrounding the focal point is a learned attribute, and should a painter seeking to be better at realism first learn to paint without this abstraction? 03:44 — Which solvent would you recommend to rework an area that is dry without damaging the canvas? 04:47 — Some colors, like Winsor & Newton's Terre Verte don't hold their body when medium is added and become too transparent. What are your thoughts on this issue? 05:44 — You teach drawing using a proportional divider, but other methods includes the use of grids, projectors, and optical devices like a camera obscura. What are your thoughts on these methods? Is it "cheating"? 08:06 — How do I learn more about painting backgrounds? A poorly chosen or poorly painted background can ruin an otherwise good painting. 10:36 — As a left-hander, I've occasionally blocked in using my right hand, finding it looser and more accurate than left-hand blocking. Have you ever tried painting left-handed? 11:31 — In your "how to set up a still life" video you talk about taking a bunch of "junk" and just putting it in a shadow box at random until you arrive at a grouping you like. What are your thoughts on starting with things that have some relationship to one another? 12:56 — Why is it called "Geneva" Artists' Oil Color? 13:30 — How do you sign your paintings? Do you add any other info to the back? 14:39 — Sometimes I have difficulty getting in "the zone" when starting artwork. Do you have any warm ups you do before starting a painting? 16:59 — I use Winsor & Newton oil paint and after I finish a painting and it dries for several weeks, I can see shiny areas and dull areas. Does this happen with Geneva paint too, and can I mix Geneva paint and Winsor & Newton paint together on my palette and on my canvas? 19:31 — Do you usually work in a completely black studio like in your videos? Is it necessary? I think I would prefer a happier, bright, cheery studio, but I understand there might be glare issues. Can you talk more about that? 24:10 — It is easy to copy life itself on a canvas after years of practice, but how does one see value and color when copying from their imagination? 27:22 — When you are painting, how do you when you are "done"?

Montague Dawson: A collection of 211 paintings (HD)
Description: "Montague Dawson was born in London, the son of a sea captain. His grandfather was the successful Midlands landscape painter, Henry Dawson (1811-1878) who had himself moved to Chiswick. Montague Dawson studied under the marine painter Charles Napier Hemy (1841-1917) who, born in Newcastle, lived in London for some years before moving to Falmouth. On completing his studies, Dawson joined a commercial studio specialising in nautical illustrations.
Dawson served in the Royal Navy, he contributed illustrations to magazines including “The Sphere”, and having witnessed the surrender of the German High Seas Fleet in 1918, a complete issue of The Sphere was dedicated to the event. After leaving the Navy, Dawson took up painting full-time, living first in London before moving to Milford-on-Sea in Hampshire. Dawson had first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1917, a Naval subject “The Eyes of the Fleet”, and although frequently painting contemporary marine and naval compositions, his particular interest was in historical works, clipper ships and galleons. Whatever the subject, his paintings are marked by his acute attention to historical detail and his knowledge of ships and the sea.
His popularity was such that the New Mariners Museum in Newport Rhode Island opened a wing devoted to his works in 1975, and Presidents Eisenhower and Johnson owned paintings of the US Navy Frigate Constellation. A member of the Royal Society of Marine Artists and a fellow of the Royal Society of British Artists, Dawson was the foremost marine painter of the 20th century.
His works can be found in museums in: Cambridge; Edinburgh; London and Newport Rhode Island."
