Uniqueness of emerging painting styles and the seeming simplicity of winter scene

Winter creek project: acrylic for adults

Winter ends in the art studio around half January. That’s just how impatient we are: once Christmas is over, we’ve got to start preparing for Valentine’s Day, Easter and most importantly for spring.

While winter may seem to be long, boring and unpleasant to many people, we are using the best part of it: the picturesque beauty of snow-covered fields makes a good scene for painting, especially when contrasted with frozen or silently running dark streams to which the majestic attraction of trees under the snow is added.

Well, our vision and perception of any object are absolutely unique: there are no two persons who can see one thing in exactly the same way. That’s how nature has taken care of our individual features. That’s also how one image becomes a reflection of many personal interpretations and allows to create lots of distinctive paintings which are attractive in their own way. Painting as a process is a very individual activity regardless of how much of external experience or a priori knowledge we are implementing in this process. The art we are creating from scratch will always carry our own features, as well. From psychological point of view, it is possible to associate certain types of lines, composition, application of paint, colors, amount of detail or lack of it with particular human features. I find this fantastic because that’s one more way how our uniqueness manifests.

The emerging painting style is like handwriting: once we have perfected it, it’s completely ours. Does it make sense to repeat somebody else’s writing? Probably not, not even in these cases when you are told your writing is hard to read. The most beautiful hand-writings are actually all complicated and hard to read.

  1. Inese very nice i don’t think one hand writing can be copy there will always be some different and nor surprise that each are unique and have something of their own to say. like the idea of expressing same subject by different individuls.

    • Thanks Doron! Rxactly! We can use the handwriting to identify the person and vice versa: regardless of all efforts to copy another handwriting or style, the truth is shining through!
