Easy Painting Ideas Biography

source(google.com.pk)
Great paintings have a mystical quality that I call "compelling."  When I walk into a museum, I often pause at the door and ask myself which painting is the most compelling.  Ultimately, one imape will stand out from the rest."  It seems to me that starting with a good thought and eliminating all extraneous elements takes a painting far down the road the goal of being compelling. (emphasis added)


Mr. Lindstrom is saying much the same thing - start with a compelling idea.  Then strengthen the idea by only including elements in the painting which support the idea.  By definition, if an element doesn't support your compelling idea, then it detracts from it and should be eliminated.

Further in the Early to Rise Newsletter, Mr. Masterson delves further into the related topics of,  "What is Good Thinking?" and "How do you come up with good ideas?":

I've been thinking about the process . . . and also wondering why so much of my writing ends up being such drivel . . . and I haven't been able to come up with anything brilliant. But the other day, BB said something in a memo that was a breakthrough.

We were talking about what was wrong with the writing in several publications we have in England. By most standards, it seems "good" -- the expression and style are fine and even the ideas are OK (ordinary but not "bad"), but, overall, the quality is mediocre. We had made suggestions about improving it in the past, and all our suggestions were dutifully observed. Yet, the bottom-line quality of the publications had not improved. There was something deeper than anything we'd yet been able to describe that was still wrong here. And, finally, my partner, BB, figured out what it was.

In a memo about a writer we both admire, he said, "What I like best about his writing is how unique his ideas are. His view of how things work in the world is very different from mine. But his view is authentic . . . and that's why I like it."

BB had struck gold, I thought. Authenticity is the key. Good writing must not only involve good ideas but also be authentic.

This is what gives it its relative value -- it doesn't matter what the subject is so long as the ideas and the expression of those ideas are authentic . . . that they honestly and truthfully reflect the thoughts and feelings of the writer . . .

Now, re-read the sentence above and replace the word "writer" with the word "painter."  Wouldn't it be just as valid?  In fact, let me do it for you:

This is what gives a painting its relative value -- it doesn't matter what the subject is so long as the ideas and the expression of those ideas are authentic . . . that they honestly and truthfully reflect the thoughts and feelings of the painter.


For those who have suffered through this exploration so far, let's get to the crux.

What makes a great painting?

1.  Start with one good compelling idea to convey

2.  Depict the idea without any unnecessary elements, colors or brushstrokes

3.  Be Authentic - Be true to yourself, your inspiration and your style

Color can change our perception of the space around us, turning it cool and energetic, spacious or cozy. There are three key steps that can help you with the process of color selection:

1. Find Inspiration
You can come up with ideas by creating a portfolio of what appeals to you: a favorite painting, the color of your baby's eyes, an unforgettable vacation in Mexico or that great hike in the Grand Canyon.
First, take into consideration your inspirational image's common denominators in terms of color. Do you like a variety of colors or particular shades and tints of a specific color? Do you like them bold or muted? Digging deep in the well of inspiration plays an important role in selecting and whittling down your choices.

2. Define the Mood
Secondly, is there a mood or theme that you would like to achieve in a particular space? Do you want a restful feel in the bedroom, or an energizing feel to the family room? The mood will lay the groundwork on the desired visual impact of a chosen paint color palette.

3. Use Key Elements in Your Home
Last but not least, take stock of all the key elements in your house. Do you have carpeting, hardwood floors, modern or antique furniture? The color of the flooring is an important consideration when you choose colors because it anchors the room and can impact the color on the wall due to reflections.
Furnishings also play an important role in determining the perfect color scheme for your house. Since these are usually the most expensive and not easily replaced items in the house, they tend to suggest a coordinating color scheme that ties everything together. An invaluable heirloom dining table, for example, will never be discarded because it doesn't match the wall color of the dining room.
