Boats

Hey everyone,

Today I have a set of nine wonderful paintings called "Boats".

Boats have served as short-distance transportation since early times.  The earliest boats have been predicted to be logboats.  The oldest boats to be found by archaeological excavation are logboats from around 7,000 - 10,000 years ago.  The oldest recovered boat in the world is the Pesee canoe; it is a dugout or hollowed tree trunk from a Pinus sylvestris.  It was constructed somewhere between 8,200 and 7,600 B.C.

Boats played a very important part in the commerce between the Indus Valley Civilization and Mesopotamia.  The accounts of historians Herodotus, Pliny the Elder, and Strabo suggest that boats were being used for commerce and traveling.

Watercolors

Hello all,

Today I have a set of three watercolor paintings.  This set is called "Watercolors".

Watercolor painting (also aquarelle from French), is a painting method.  A watercolor is the medium or the resulting artwork in which the paints are made of pigments suspended in a water-soluble vehicle.  The traditional and most common support for watercolor paintings is paper, other supports include papyrus, bark papers, plastics, vellum or leather, fabric, wood, and canvas.  Watercolors are usually transparent, and appear luminous because the pigments are laid down in a relatively pure form with few fillers obscuring the pigment colors.

This is a two tile painting, and is base game compatible.

Hope you enjoy.

William-Adolphe Bouguereau

Hi everyone,

Today I have an update for you of nine William-Adolphe Bouguereau paintings.  This was a request from Janice....thanks for the request Janice, I just may have to do a few more sets; wonderful paintings!!

William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825 - 1905) was a French academic painter and traditionalist.  In his realistic genre paintings he used mythological themes, making modern interpretations of classical subjects, with an emphasis on the female human body.  During his life he enjoyed significant popularity in France and the United States, was given numerous official honors, and received top prices for his work.  As the quintessential salon painter of his generation, he was reviled by the Impressionist avant-garde.  By the early twentieth century, Bouguereau and his art feel out of favor with the public, due in part to changing tastes.  in the 1980's, a revival of interest in figure painting led to a rediscovery of Bouguereau and his work.  Throughout the course of his life, Bouguereau executed 822 know finished paintings, although the whereabouts of many are still unknown.

Commissioned by Kings - Rococo Mirror

Hi all,

As mentioned in my previous post regarding the new sculpture in the new Sims Set "Palace of Versailles", I was a bit disappointed in the "Commissioned By Kings" painting that is actually a sculpture.  After making the paintings I thought this would also make a nice mirror, so this is what I have for you called "Commissioned by Kings - Rococo Mirror".

This is a two tile mirror with full credit to EA Games for the mesh, and also has 3 colour channels.

Hope you enjoy!

Commissioned by Kings - Rococo Painting

Hi all,

I have done a conversion of the "Commissioned By Kings" sculpture from the new Palace of Versailles set.  I was a bit disappointed that this was a sculpture and not a painting to hang on the wall...........so I made it into a painting you can hang on the wall and have called it "Commissioned by Kings - Rococo Painting".

The paintings depicted are those by one of the great French Rococo painters, François Boucher (1703 - 1770).  François Boucher was a French painter, a proponent of Rococo taste, know for his idyllic and voluptuous paintings on classical themes, decorative allegories representing the arts or pastoral occupation, intended as a sort of two-dimensional furniture.  He was perhaps the most celebrated decorative artist of the 18th century.  He also painted several portraits of his illustrious patroness, Madame de Pompadour.

This is a two tile painting that is base game compatible.  Of course, full credit to EA Games for the mesh.  This painting has 3 colour channels too.

Monet Fancy Frame Paintings

Hi everyone,

Today I have a set of six paintings by Claude Monet called "Monet Fancy Frame Paintings". These took a bit to figure out, but I think they turned out not to bad.  I could have fit all six on the preview, but the detail was lost, so I have four shown so you can see the detail.

Ah, Monet........one of my favorite artists ever!

Claude Monet (1840 - 1926) was a founder of French impressionist painting, and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement's philosophy of expressing one's perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein-air (open air) landscape painting.  The term Impressionism is derived from the title of his painting "Impression, Sunrise".

These are two tile paintings and are base game compatible.

Cézanne Landscapes

Hi everyone,

Today I have a set of six Paul Cézanne landscape paintings called "Cézanne Landscapes".

Paul Cézanne (1839 - 1906) was a French artist and Post-Impressionist painter whose work laid the foundations of the transition from the 19th century conception of artistic endeavour to a new and radically different world of art in the 20th century.  Cézanne can be said to form the bridge between late 19th century impressionism and the early 20th century's new line of artistic enquiry, Cubism.  The line attributed to both Matisse and Picasso that Cézanne "is the father of us all" cannot be easily dismissed.

Cézanne's often repetitive, exploratory brushstrokes are highly characteristic and clearly recognizable.  He used planes of colour and small brushstrokes that build up to form complex fields.
