"AAU Figure Painting 2 (Day 2)"

I have been working on this painting whole day yesterday. It wasn't as smooth as the first day. I spent many hours on the leg in the front. It was soooo hard. I was painting something that I don't want people to see, but I can't simply remove it. That foot in dark is the most difficult part of the whole painting. I think the experience is more important than the painting.

Even in your challenges, your work shows great emotion. The composition is striking and the parts not painted give it interest. It's a very nice piece.

I look forward with excitement every day to receiving your post and seeing your progress. I noticed right away that that leg belonged to a bigger person and was not surprised to see your comment about it. It is the only part of the work that looks labored. I can't wait to see what happens with it next.

The word art can describe several things: a study of creative skill, a process of using the creative skill, discount oil paintings, or the audience's experience with the creative skill. The creative arts (art as discipline) are a collection of disciplines that produce artworks (art as objects) that are compelled by a personal drive (art as activity) and convey a message, mood, or symbolism for the viewer to interpret (art as experience). Art is something that stimulates cheap vibram 5 finger shoes, emotions, beliefs, or ideas through the senses. Artworks can be explicitly made for this purpose or interpreted on the basis of images or objects. Although the application of scientific knowledge to derive a new scientific theory involves skill and results in the "creation" of something new, this represents science only and is not categorized as art.
