Art obsessions

A while ago, I mentioned that I'm using twitter to post links to some of my favourite artists. Now I've also started a new tumblr to post pics of my favourite artworks.


Hush by Audrey Kawasaki


Grotto of the Old Mass by Mark Ryden


Brothers by Ana Bagayan


Three Ama Enveloped in a Crashing Wave by kozyndan

You may find some new favourites here (and some old favourites!) and maybe some inspiration.

I've also found a few painting demonstration videos from various artists and I popping them on this site too. Like this one from Ana Bagayan:



So pop over to artobsessions.tumblr.com and take a peek.

These are really impressive, especially the demo. I'm wondering what she's doing at the beginning with this "machine" and then the "rubbing"? o_O

She's sanding back the gesso. She uses about 3 layers of clear gesso to seal the pencil, then sands it back to a perfectly smooth surface to paint on.
