A painting is a moody creature. At times dark and subdued, at times vibrant and energetic. A friend of music and a soul-mate to poetry. It is born out of a union of drawing and colour. It is a creature that lives in an artist’s soul. It is a creature that reveals itself on a canvas. It camouflages itself in a number of hues and breathes the oils, the water and the acrylic. It is a creature that makes life bearable.
An artist on the other hand, could be any person who dares to rip this creature apart from its dwelling and unleash it on a canvas. An artist relentlessly practices to resurrect the life that may have been lost when the cord between the artist and his creation is cut.
While some artists strive to bring a life-like quality to their work, others purposely move themselves away from it. Though each master of the craft has his/her own individual style, there are some factors that help an art enthusiast in classifying them. The most common classification in paintings is done on the basis of medium used. The three primarily used mediums are:
We at ULA, offer courses in all these three mediums, the details of which can be accessed at here.
The second classification is done on the basis of the composition of paintings and some of these forms are listed below:
The way the keys of a piano make music only if punched in a proper sequence, results in art study are achieved only if you follow certain key points as a practice. So let’s get to it.
