David Hockney v Don Schaeffer
#1
I was watching a program about David Hockney (the artist) who has now got the whole of the Royal Academy of Arts in London for an exhibition.
I was quite interested in how he described things and why he paints in such strange ways.
After clicking the link below - Click on 'about the exhibition' and then 'Click here to view a gallery of images'.

A lot of these paintings are of Yorkshire UK, my county of birth. Hockney was also born in the town where I was born. (Never met him)

They remind me in a loose way of Don's style (Both photo's and paintings).
I don't comment as much as I probably should, but I do view them.
Lumix LX5.
Canon 350 D.+ 18-55 Kit lens + Tamron 70-300 macro. + Canon 50mm f1.8 + Manfrotto tripod, in bag.

Yeah but he's a real artist and I'm just a nameless amateur.

Not on Shuttertalk or Amazon. Rolleyes Big Grin
He was nameless when he started. He did a painting of Bradford Town Hall and a few other landmarks and it was used on the Telephone Directory cover. I think mine is gone by the wayside now.

Interesting link, some very nice artwork shown there.
