What Is - Index

I am placing this on the FAQ so that people can just find immediately any they would like to read when they want to read them. Also it means I dont have to keep trying to find every thread to update the list of 'What Is' threads.

Thanks for understanding the need for this post.

Please feel free to add below the name of something you would like me to add to it and I will have a look to see what I can do.


Ok... So far we have up......

So far so good, Beth and thanks for organising these subjects, wish I could add one, shall give it some thought. Vivian Of course you could touch on all the 'isms and have an endless list: how about Fauve? A strange 'ism for sure .

 

LOL yes :)

Could you tell me where "what is stumbleupon?" can be found. Did I miss it on stickies?

Hi Beth. Yes please. Can you do one on (cap C) Colourists, (as in Scottish, Peploe et al) cos I've noticed (not here) that there is often confusion surrounding the proper use of that one in the UK. Cheers.

Yours pedantically

 

Anne, try this post This Stumbleupon Thing..?? Is There A How To For Dummies?? Lol

Yes Maria, will do that next for you.

to bad you couldnt add emotionism to the index

 

If I do a 'what is' on it then it will be added :)

I suppose adding "Art History" to "what is" might scare off folks not used thinking of history as a love story..........

if you need explanation and videos just let me know.. i have also invited a couple of artists from other sites i have met and have joined the emotionist movement to join FAA.. they are really good.. moom from poland and anjana from, a place i can not pronounce..lol..but let me know

 

Thanks Michael I should be ok. :)

Charles I was going to add History to it but, as you said, I actually thought it may scare some people off and so stuck with 'What is' :)

A piece on art history might clarify whether one can or cannot be a member of an artistic movement that has been defunct for (say) more than a hundred years, which had a specific agenda pertinent to its members or to the age, ie. can one actually be a Fauve or can one only paint in a Fauve-like manner?.

Maria, even the Fauvists had variation in their particular manners of painting and could easily be recognized one from another. I personally see no reason one can't adopt the "program" with enough research to further the studies of a particular way of seeing and painting...but take the case of Impressionism. Creating a painting that has the appearance of Impressionism while sitting in one's comfortable, dial-a-temperature, cozy studio with fake sunlight bulbs looking at a photograph (and then of some place one has never been - even worse) is not being an "Impressionist" by any stretch of the imagination. It is an carnival act creating bogus goods that only look like Impressionism to the unsophisticated eye.

Impressionism is done outside in real life looking at real things in real time in real weather looking deeply at the color games as sunlight interacts with various substances.

I have a question about stumble......... how do you use it with your art work since it says no commercial posting without paying for an account? Do you have a commercial account or is there a way to still post your artwork?

How do i find other FAA people to connect with?

OH YAY! I am happy you posted this! So interesting - thanks!

Good idea, Abbie.

stumble is a random search that will send random people to your site and it's hard to say if it will result in sales. they don't like commerical and they don't like it when it comes from the same link. you can place your things there, but you'll also have to mix it up with other pages. but that's hard to do since everyone does that now. i got tired of trying to please them and gave up pretty fast.

Can you suggest a site where I can get information? I found a Raphael Soyer Litho p 2518 Waiting on the audition... looks very old and I'm at a loss of where to start.

i would go to a museum and ask a curator or maybe a gallery. or just google. if you can take a picture and upload that picture to their image search you might be able to narrow it down.

Abbie, are you going to do one on Urban Exploration art? I know that is kind of a newer field, but there is a movement in that direction. I have seen a few here besides myself that do that. :)

 

Yes, that would be a good one.

I have that on my list now :)

Hello Abbie this is great you posting these important topics and great job organizing them....I did have a question is there any way a complete Index or Directory were we all can at random go and select the various important information we all use for Discussion forms, I know they have the small arrows sometimes that gets a little confusing you scroll up or down one arrow to another and so forth......is that something to look in to as well an index for discussions I know from experience, if you type a search word for a particular discussion and then forget to X it clear then you start to have problems which I so much thank you,,,Abbie help, help, how do I clear out the discussions to get to the last current discussion, and as you always instructed me Michael you hit Control F5 do this a couple of times and watch what happens...thanks for this index page.....very helpful...


Do you ever recall a Pen and Ink drawing index, I had in the past drawn in pen and ink was there ever a How To on that subject......


Cheers and Happy Summer to You, Your Family and Animals.....Michael Hoard
