Art Critique May 2014

May’s critique welcomed two new members and of course they contributed wonderfully with the group.  Much of what we presented and talked about was our community with the world around us, and in particular the ‘natural’ world. Thom brought a dynamic painting focused on how two worlds can influence on each other.  This paintings graphically […]

Art Critique March 2014

This month we had a very eclectic group of art which often provoke the greatest amount of discussion, especial focused on art making and processes.  All participates seem to draw from nature, but in much different ways of expression and feeling. Donna presented a group of ‘ghost prints’ of waterfalls, or an idea of a […]

Art Critique Feburary 2014

We had six attendees this month that included a wide variety of media and styles. Ron presented three beachscapes (about a quarter sheet size), based on some plein-air painting on the coast of Laguna Beach. Comments were about the rich color and brushwork were used to capture the rocky island and foreground structure. All of […]

Art Critique January 2014

This month critique focused on volume, mood and the painted picture dialog.  It was a great way to start the New Year out and a way to keep the creative juices flowing for the entire year. We began with three pastels on Bonsai trees that I completed over the holidays.  Pastels is a great medium […]

Art Critique Feburary 2013

We’ve been busy, to say the least, and the latest crit shows some real progress in all participates. But before the work came out we began a lengthy discussion hovering around art history.  The discussion started with the idea of anti-art at the turn of the 20th century and how Dada seemed to clear the […]

Art Critique December 2012

This was a night filled with good talk and great art that we hope will translate into works that are better by the effort of the evening.  The idea of form dominants the discussion and the integration of those forms within the motif completes the cycle.  Close to those topics are the true representation of […]

Art Critiques August 2012

An eclectic group of artwork is shown at this month’s critique which highlights each individual’s process and style, so it was a good night for evaluating the meaning of art making and the conscience need for each of us to create art. The night began with series sketches that Ryan had made during his breaks […]
