View Full Version : Whose your favourite painter?
Certain threads have lead me to the question:-
Who is your favourite painter? (All answers, bar a certain Austrian house painter, accepted.)
Any style, of anything!
My favorite painter would have to be Waterhouse. I like his 'lady of the lake' painting or it might be named 'the lady of shallot' (It's the one with her in a boat) La Belle sans Dame Merci is also a nice one (I'm pretty sure I didn't write the name correctly :rolleyes: ). Personally, my taste when it comes to artwork leans more towards the rennesance period (oops spelling). What about you?

OH I really like the artists' work in my avator, I also like Andromedas' avator. They seem to hold a fantasy look to them which makes them special. I wonder if the same artist made them?
Lady Of Eternal Darkness: Yeah I read a magazine about Final Fantasy x-2 today. The graphics are going to be amazing! I REALLY am going to have to buy a memory card and FFX as soon as possible hehehe, I can't wait. Too bad I'm broke. Maybe I should take out a small loan :rolleyes:

I like Lowry,
With his matchstick men etc:. And Vincent, for being more brilliant than I can comprehend - and as mad as a hatter!
Amazing, even though i have no clue again!but sounds interesting! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif (not being sarcatic, just wanna clear that up in case there's a misunderstanding!)

Georgia O'Keeffe, Maxfield Parish, Frida Kahlo
Ah yes!!!! Frida!!! Great movie too http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif .
Hi Jade http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif I think Selma did a wonderful job with the movie. It's amazing how much she was able to capture Frida, it was very apparent that she put her whole heart into the project.
The Dali guy, hmm can not seem to remember his first name, his paintings are very bizarre
Hi Kasia http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Hello TR-Player http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif
Hi Isabella! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif
My favourite painter is my dad.
He did a great job of the ceiling and skirting boards... No drips at all, what a pro.
How did I miss this thread? *bangs head on keyboard*
I love loads of artists but I especially love Georgia O'Keeffe, her work is so vibrant. The way she can capture flowers is stunning.
Here's a picture of one of my favourites by her.
And Van Gogh...
There's just one word I can use to describe this painting...
Mine's Degas by far and large.
Caravaggio and Davide. Also Weber and Moebius.
Hy everyone! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif
Renoir, Monet, Degas, Van Gogh and Dali are my favourite painters.
But if we talk about photography, I love Anne Gueddes. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/love3.gif
She takes beautiful pictures with cute babies!! Just adorable! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/cutie.gif
Hmm. Probably Bridget Riley because I can relate to her images early, very early in the morning/really late at night when I'm cpu'ing and the screen seems to be swaying in front of my eyes :eek: http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif ;)
My favourite painter is the one who just finished my halls & bedroom...he did a great job, & didn't charge as much as some others have. :D
My other favourite is a local Nova Scotian artist by the name of Kelsey Raymond. He was a great friend too, but passed away 2 years ago. I have a number of his paintings in my home...his seascapes are very realistic & generally rugged, and in later years he painted scenes of old houses, barns, etc. I love his work.
My fav painter is Johnny off 'The Fast Show' :D http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/jumper.gif but most of you probably wont know what the heck im on about lol
