Sorry I about dropped off the face of the earth, art-production wise. I've been pretty busy. But today I felt the urge to play around a bit with a different style and paint something cute.

This post is brought to you by my hurpa-durp cat and a bad day.

John Singer Sargent

No original art today. Sorry guys.

I just felt like showing you some sketches by my all-time favorite artist, John Singer Sargent. His sketches aren't shown as often as his very famous paintings, but are absolutely breathtaking... If I could have three wishes, one would be to watch Sargent paint, the other would be to have him draw me, and the third would be for a billion dollars. But I concur.

His talent leaves me speechless and feeling 100 times more inadequate and inspired than any other artist.

Look at the necklace in the last one! How did he do that?? How did he make is so clear that she's wearing a a sparkling piece of jewlery with barely any marks? The arms and legs of the men wrestling... He only had to HINT at toes and fingers, but it registers as realism! I cannot even comprehend he artistic genius. And I have to put this one in because I love it so much:

Meet the Artist
