The Evolution Of Modern Art Painting And The Pioneers Therein



The global acceptance of modern art has led to its presence being seen in various forms in many art exhibitions. Any exhibition, boasting of art paintings for sale, is sure to include some form or other of modern art paintings.
It is termed as abstract expression of the artists on the canvass. The painting is not specific to any object, but the centralized theme is reflected in the painting using colours and images on the minds of those artists. The evolution of modern art as an activity, started during the World War II and its origin can be traced in America. The word was coined by Robert Coates who was a famous critic of automatic and spontaneous expression of creativity in the form of paintings.
The modern art painting is the first of its kind in artistic movements in America (in Russia such movement was seen during the era of constructivism) which went on to gain global importance. Willem De Kooning and Arshile Gorky are the pioneers in this field.
It is again sub divided into action painting and colour field painting. The former category was practiced by Philip Gus ton and Franz Kline who stressed upon the aspects related to physical action in the painting works. The latter category of modern art was practiced by Kenneth Moland and Mark Rothko who stressed more on the use of colour effects in their works.
There are no hard and fast regulations that can be used to draw a line for evolution of modern art paintings. The common form of art used by the artists are derived by the form of accessories they use and the pattern they follow while expressing their thoughts, such as use of large canvas, stressing on the flatness of the canvass and spreading the art across the canvass, thus using the whole area available.
The abstract expressionist painting as a form of art, lost its ground in early 1960's but it influenced the minimalist and pop art forms to a large extent. Pop art concentrates on mass themes like comics and commercial advertisements whereas minimalist form of art concentrates on the use of minimal colour to express the thoughts. The minimal use of colours enable ripping apart the existing art into basic geometrical designs and bring about the fundamental features to the fore. The modern art painting, though not very popular in its original form, is now globally acknowledged in other forms of art.

After drying apply camel acrylic gloss medium onto the plate. It gives a glossy finish to the painting and also helps it to last long.

Your ceramic painting is ready.

To make a cone:

Take a thick plastic cover or sheet, roll it in the shape of a cone and stick the edges. Fill the paste inside the cone and close it sticking the ends tightly. Make a small hole with a pin at the tip of the cone. The fine paste can be squeezed out in a thin strand. This can be used to give the out line of the design in the plate.

Tips on Painting Ceramics

Painting is a creative way to make your ceramic projects personal and unique. Follow these tips for beautiful results.

Clean your ceramic item. This is very important to do so that your paint adheres to your item properly. Use your scraper gently in a downward motion on all the seam lines. These are the lines that were created by the mold you used to make your ceramic item. Use your sponge to erase the seam lines and wipe down the surfaces. Dampen your sponge and wring it out completely. Excess water in your sponge can cause your piece to become pliable again.

Choose the paint colors you want to use and a variety of paintbrushes depending on how you decide to decorate your pottery. Pottery paint is acrylic glaze and most commonly is sold in bottles at craft stores or shops where you can make and paint pottery crafts. If you are creating a stenciled piece or painting a smaller area, one or two bottles will be enough. If you are creating something bigger or painting all one color, you will need three to five bottles.

Remember when buying paint that it takes three coats of paint for your brush stokes not to show. Three coats allows the finished piece to be all one color instead of various shades of one color. Allow each coat to dry completely before applying the next coat.

Use different brushes for different techniques. Make sure the bristle edges are straight and even. A broader brush is used to apply paint to an entire surface. Smaller, fine-pointed brushes can be used to paint specific designs or to fill in bits of color. Have one brush per color to avoid accidentally mixing paints.

Use lighter-colored paint first if you will be overlapping the colors. Darker-colored paint will bleed through the lighter ones if you use the darker color first.

Use stencils if desired. They can be held in place by hand or by masking tape before applying the paint. You can also use masking tape to make straight lines in a design. Place the tape, paint the line along the edge and pull off the tape when the paint dries.

Experiment with imaginative ways to paint. Explore using different objects to create special paint effects. For example, use a sponge to sponge-paint in dabs of color. Instead of touching your paintbrush to the surface, flick the paint at your piece and let it land wherever it will to create a spatter paint effect. Look at ordinary things around the room and consider how you might use them to apply the paint in a unique manner.

Glaze and fire your finished piece in the kiln for a one-of-a-kind personal creation.
