painter of light -kinkade thomas

Mr. Kinkade referred to himself as the “painter of light,” usually with a trademark symbol, for naturalistic scenes with highlights that appeared to glow. Often his canvases were mass-produced prints to which he added small, brightly toned details. He made no apologies for commercializing the art field, comparing himself to million-sellers in, say, music and literature.

The basic characteristics of Mark

The basic characteristic of Impressionism is that light and color are the centers of the world. With the deepening and development of scientific research, the people of the 19th century have understood that objects are presented in different colors because of their absorption and reflection of different light. All the objects will absorb the sun will be black, all reflected sunlight was white, reflecting the blue light waves and other light waves to absorb the blue and so on. Any object of nature must be influenced by the color of the light source and other objects in the surrounding environment, so there can be no absolute inherent color. The idea that the tree is green, the flower is the red concept, but only certain historical conditions of understanding in the scientific development of the 19th century, it is obviously out of date. People realize that even with the same light source, in the early morning and evening different times, will also have different color effects on the object. And the distance between the object and the light source, the angle of light, the surface finish of the object and other conditions will affect the color changes. The relationship between light and color is extremely complex and subtle. In this way, the concept of traditional solid color was completely broken.

These acquaintances prompted Impressionist painters to use colors boldly. They seek real and bright color effects, began to use color, color or color point juxtaposition of the way to describe the object. Such as red and blue juxtaposition and get bright purple. This impressionist painter's picture suddenly become bright and bright. If you put a classic oil painting with the Impressionist works, you will marvel at the achievements of the Impressionist painters in color. Because in their pictures really reflect the light and color of the infinite charm.
