An Artist's Journeys in Nature

More Classics

Greek Vase Painting - Patricia HowittOf course, it wasn’t too long before a “Movies” scrapbook got started.

It was  mainly for movies about Greece and Rome, and I combed the magazine stands for movie magazines with reviews on anything new in the genre.

Today, things haven’t really changed.  The Internet is a wonderful medium for making “scrapbooks”, and we create them all the time – be it in blogs or static websites, with photos, artwork or videos.  It’s really great to catch up legitimately with an old hobby in a new format – without feeling ‘wussy’ !

And naturally, there had to be more artworks …Alexander & Caryatids Drawings - Patricia Howitt

The Masters of Greek Vase Painting

The other thing I frequently go back to in wonderment is Greek vase painting. I love the limited palettes, the brilliant composition, the strong but sensitive lines.  These artists were indeed masters:

And a little tribute of mine:

Ganymede & Heracles - Patricia Howitt

But the Greek Vase painters didn’t have it all on their own – more next time!
