If I could paint half as badly as Picasso, I'd be a happy man. The word 'genius' is grossly overused these days but Picasso rates right up at the top for me.Jonzjob":54jlhsth said:Oh dear Gordon, I am so very glad I didn't post that :arrow: :arrow: :arrow: Way out..
Not the wine I drink mate! I think he's bin on the absenthe and as they say "absenthe makes the heart grow and the mind shrink". And I'll bet just like Picaso he can't paint :mrgreen: Well, maybe the odd wall?
Indeed, when I was studying at Camberwell in the 70's, we spent considerable time examining artist's work before they got famous. I don't trust any artist to have anything meaningful to say unless he/she or it is capable of accurately reproducing whatever the subject is representationally (is there such a word? The spell checker didn't blink)Benchwayze":5fo4sfol said:Gus,
It is not so widely known that Picaso was an extremely competent representational painter too.
You just ain't been 'sensitized' mate!Jonzjob":187nq4n2 said:I think that is one of the main things that anoys me about Picaso, in that he WAS such a good artist and actually knew that a person has an eye either side of their nose. I haven't studied any kind of art at any kind of school. But I do know what I like.
I also like jazz, or some of it. I am not a fan of a groupe of players tuning up and calling it music, a bit like Bengi Britain..
