WaterColorDesignForTextileThe Art Of Love Watercolor Painting Done On A Paper

Githinji Patrick (°1977, Nyeri, Kenya) makes paintings, photos and drawings. By exploring the concept of landscape in a nostalgic way, Patrick creates intense personal moments masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal, luring the viewer round and round in circles.

His paintings establish a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver. These works focus on concrete questions that determine our existence. By applying abstraction, he investigates the dynamics of landscape, including the manipulation of its effects and the limits of spectacle based on our assumptions of what landscape means to us. Rather than presenting a factual reality, an illusion is fabricated to conjure the realms of our imagination.

African Contemporary Art Watercolor, Oil And Acrylic Painting

Using oil colours in painting, consist of pigments which has been included in drying oils.
The oil painted picture is coated with varnish to protect it from hostile climatic conditions,
like abrasions and accumulation of dust.

 

This varnish layer can be removed in a safe way by
an experienced person using isopropyl alcohol or other common solvents. The applied varnish,
gives the surface a uniform lustre bringing a tonal depth and intensity of colour virtually to the
original levels of the artist creation when the paint was wet. There are some contemporary artists
who do not favor colour intensity, Therefore they prefer a mat or lustreless, oil painting finish.

oil that could have been extracted from walnuts or poppies. But oil was recorded as early as the
11th century in the Europe.

Oil paints later emerged as basic form of painting medium in Venice in the 16th century. During
the 16th century, the Venetian artsist were studying the basic characteristics of the oil paint as a
painting medium and by the end of the century they had become proficient with oil painting.

During the 17th century there had emerged proffessionals in the field of oil painting technique
who included Diego Velazquez who was a painter in Venetian tradition, Rembrandt Van Rijn who
was a Dutch painter and the Flemish painter Peter Paul Reubens who influenced the painters who
came later in the field of oil painting.

Some of the abstract and contemporary artists in their tarditional painting styles, have shown a need
for a entirely different panting mediums which have different flow or viscosity that are not found
in oil based paints. Some will need a wider range of thickness and also thin application and the rate
of drying. Some will prefer using watercolour and or acrylic based paints. On part of the water
based paints the artist have the freedom to use transparent applications. On acrylic paints, they are
more versatile and dry faster
