Anything painted in art is what appeals to me the most. I made quite a decent collection of painted arts both ones that are obscene in nature, as long as they are well artistic in nature and command a sense of maturity, then I'm most likely to purchase it. What Art form do you like most?

I bought that painting around the sum of $55.

That's such a beautiful piece of art. I also feel like I gravitate more towards painted art. Whenever I travel somewhere new I try and pick up a painting to add to our collection, we like displaying them on the walls of our house to remind us of all the places we've been!

That's a lovely painting. What medium is it? I have two paintings, acrylic on canvas. I paid $10 each. Well, the painting could have cost me more than $100, however, I bought the painting directly from the artist who was trying to raise funds for the flood victims.

The painting was hand painted on cloth before its fixed up on portrait. I didn't have the opportunity to deal directly with the painter, I had to buy it from open art show room and I believe that it's the reason it was quite expensive.

I meant to ask whether it is oil, water, or acrylic paint. Is the artist well know? The painting I have are from the well-known artist in the country. I wish I could share the paintings here, but I have never photographed my paintings. The artist has a studio in the country as well as abroad (India and France)

From what I was told, the painting was done by one of Nike Davis - Okunade apprentice. She was one of the best artists we have over here and from the art painting, it's not far from being the truth. The painting was an oil painting.

I am also curious about the medium used in this painting. I easily get confused about acrylic and oil paintings. For water color painting, not so, because it is more lighter and the finish is different from oil and acrylic. I love paintings and there are lots of very talented artists here in our country.

The basic difference between an oil painting and acrylic painting is former has a smooth surface whereas the later looks rough on the surface.
Oil paints have more pigments, therefore, oil paintings look more colorful. Acrylic paints dry faster compared to oil paintings.

It reminds me of a movie. I don't know what movie. But I'm sure I've seen some that have people collecting precious art for their own collection. It's wonderful that you're supporting artists and appreciating their work.

I love looking at paintings too, although I haven't purchased any yet because although I want to support the artists whose works I like, especially the younger, unknown ones, I don't really have much to spare for those purchases.

I can totally relate. It's not for everyone. I think people with extra money can buy such paintings. Though, if it's not too expensive, we might sometimes be able to buy what we like.

Oh my! What a lovely painting!
~ Where did you get it?
~ Did you attend an art show?
~ Were you at an estate sale?
~ Did you purchase online?
I would love to know who the artist is.

Before I get off track, my response to this question: My favorite art form is painting. It could oil. It could be watercolors. Just painting in general.

But I also like mosaics and sculptures.

cmoneyspinner

According to Wikipedia:
"Mosaics have a long history, starting in Mesopotamia in the 3rd millennium BC. ...Mosaic art flourished in the Byzantine Empire from the 6th to the 15th centuries; ..."

Since I am not an artist, I would say if I were picking an art form that I could do, it would be mosaics. I think I could easily take bits and pieces of small items and form a nice picture.

You know what I've really been into lately? Macrame! I love the detailed wall hangings that people make, and I want to try and give it a go myself to see if I can make one. I'm sure I won't be an expert on the first try but it's worth a shot!

Wow, that looks very interesting. I think I have seen something like that before but not this up close. It really looks good but one problem it might pose to its owner is how to deal with getting dust on it. You certainly cannot wash it otherwise it's going to squeeze up and look awful. If it had been a more darker color, it would be better with taking care of dust on it.

Oh my goodness! You've reminded of a friend that I have lost touch with and have not spoken to for almost 30 years. She is the only … THE ONLY … person that I know who did macrame. I remember some of the pieces she created. I was so impressed. It is an art form that requires not only skill but patience. However, as is displayed by the image you shared, the end product is worth the effort. She could have sold her pieces but she only made them for her home.

I like Panorama the most because it's big and catches the whole background, it's a 360 degree wide angle scene and that makes an awesome painting. One thing I like about it is the complexity of the background in which you could see even the smallest subtleties and expressions in the background.

Panorama is great too. I like to see the wide view of an image. The landscape makes me feel like you can enter the painting and turn it into a real world.

I like paintings. It really take skills in order to finish a masterpiece. It is one of the most appealing form of art for me. It conveys a lot about the piece and the person who make them. It is somewhat timeless and paint is always one of the most in demand mediums out there in the market.

You are very correct my friend with that assertion. It takes a lot great skills and expertise for one to finish up an artistic painting. Starting the painting work is easier compared to its finishing up touches. At such time, just one simple mistake would ruin the entire job, thereby forcing you to start the job all over again.

Mural art always catch my breath, specially when it comes to 3D effects. I've been in love or artists that do street murals, those that are used to grab your attention on a subject, like protests, commemorations, 911 hot lines, everything that reflects reality and shocks you. Another one that's my favorite is Mosaic mural art, it requires a lot of patience, imagination, and creativity, to create a full image based on little pieces, and mostly when it's done with basic elements like garbage or recycled items.

Abstract arts are like open-ended stories that are open to numerous interpretations. Abstract art is judged based on the color composition and brush strokes, among many other criteria. Abstract arts are like clouds, one moment you see a tiger and the very next moment you see a human form.

Paintings use various mediums and the most common are oil, water, and acrylic. Currently, installation art is trending. Installation art is an art forum that used various medium and forums. An artist patches a rag in the canvas and paints over it and this will be an installation painting. An artist will paint his body and sit on a street, this is also a kind of installation art.

Art has always been targeted towards privilege and affluent people. The consumer of artworks has always been the rich people. Even today people who can buy artwork are always rich people. However, this situation is changing. The art is trying to incorporate the underprivileged people and people from lower strata of the society. That's why we see various kind of art movements. Today we have Graffiti art. The Grafitte artist like Banksy is considered one of the greatest artists.

I grew up in New York City, which is particularly famous for its graffiti culture. Sure you had your basic scribbles, spray painted by average street thugs, but a lot of really talented graffiti artists congregate in NYC. I bring this up because some of these artists could paint really beautiful murals. For example, there is this really beautiful, psychedelic mural I used to see all the time when getting out of a train station in Queens. You'd find art like this all throughout the city and it was always a pleasant surprise. What Art form do you like most?

Yeah I've always found graffiti to be quite fascinating as well. It's really interesting to see how you can find incredibly talented artists even in some of the shadiest places. A lot of people consider all forms of graffiti art to be trash scribbled by criminals, but I'd invite a lot of them to try making such "trash" themselves. It's no easier painting with a spray can than with a traditional brush. I'd dare to say it's even harder in some ways. I actually had a girlfriend whose father is an ex-convict, but the man was brilliant at "street art." Luckily he managed to turn over a new leaf and use his talents to create paid, legal murals for people.

In many developing worlds graffiti artists are treated as criminals. If someone s found painting on street, he might be jailed. However, graffiti art is a wonderful art form. Since the graffiti artist uses the street to express their art form, many people believe these artists are making the street ugly. That's why graffiti at is often related to the quality of life crime.

Yeah, it's sad that people don't recognize the difference between art and plain vandalism. Some graffiti art expose problems in the society, which is why they can be targeted by the authorities especially when the artwork criticizes them outright.

Graffiti art is often related to the quality of life crimes. Activities like vandalism, protest, gathering in the public space are defined as quality of life crimes. It is unfortunate that street art is also categorized as quality of life crimes. I think street art is more related to the lives of ordinary people than the paintings done on canvas.

Yeah, it's also more accessible to the public which gives it more meaning and portrays a real depiction of what life is on the streets, which is something that the more educated painters aren't really well-versed on.

Since the graffiti artists use the street to display their artwork, their audience is the general public. Generally speaking, common people do not visit art galleries, they know nothing about art. Let me illustrate this with an example. My mother has never visited an art gallery, however, while down the street, she has stood many times to see the street art.

Definitely, some people just don't see the appeal of going to art galleries and museums, so bringing the art form into a more "digestible" form for the lay person is a great achievement by graffiti art.

Yeah, graffiti is basically the pioneer of street art. I know that the art was taken for granted before and it took a while before people accepted it as a form of art.

A lot of people still don't accept graffiti as a form of art because of the stigma that developed around it throughout the years. Graffiti and "tagging" came to be associated with thug and gangsta culture, which for many people, understandably, isn't a positive association.

I just wish that some people could look past the thug culture and appreciate the skill and talent that some of the work really takes. Even in tagging, the combination of colors and designs, the way the letters themselves flow and are used to create an image; it's really impressive stuff.

Most people still consider these forms of art as just vandalism, which is really sad when people don't acknowledge the amount of skill, effort, and time it takes to create such beauty on the street for free.

If you have lived in a ghetto, then you would be very used to seeing graffiti arts painted all over the street. Both violent painting, porn paintings and other sorts of paintings as well. Currently, football graffiti is trending well in my neighborhood, with most kids taking good interest in it.

Yeah, I'm also quite surprised in our neighborhood seeing all these football graffiti regarding the World Cup. Our country isn't really a football-loving country since our main sport is probably basketball, but it's still refreshing to see these art regarding football during this period. Just this morning I saw a "Don't cry 4-3 Argentina" art regarding what happened between France and Argentina in their match.

The graffiti from hip hop or gangs also interesting, honestly I like them, it's also arts, but not really deeper compare to others, But I really like how colorful they graffiti, and looks like a 3D.

Great art, street arts somehow will change your mood while walking in the busy streets. I remember Leo Rojas on these art, he is flute artist, he always wearing the traditional Indian clothes, and this art showing the same thing, about the Indian culture.

Yeah, it's great having some free viewing of art when you're just quietly walking down the street, and some can really be inspiring and make you think about important moments in your life. Sadly, people refuse to see its merits and qualify it as just vandalism.

You're right. It's also happening in our country. People don't recognize the street arts. There're so many leftist in our country and I admitted that, they are really doing the vandalism and not art. I just appreciate the graffiti art if I walking near the local school, specially if the artist is just a minors and don't have any idea about the real situation in the environment or government.

i like digital painting and pencil or graphite sketch. I like sketching with pencil or graphite because it is much easier and faster to control. I like digital painting because its a modern way of creating or painting an art.. I just love how I do my works in computer through digital painting and vectoring.

I have tried my hands on digital paintings. I used photoshop to create digital art. However, I am not very good at creating arts, including digital art. If you can perfect your skills on image editing program, you can create digital art. I have a friend who creates a digital painting and makes money by selling these paintings on Fine Art America.

Huh. This is a question that I've never really considered myself. I always knew that I loved art in general, but I never really thought about narrowing it down. I really like mural paintings, specifically those from the Renaissance era. The Sistine Chapel ceiling done by Michelangelo is, in my opinion, hands down one of the greatest works of art to grace God's green Earth. On a more modern note, I really like digital painting as well. I think the variety of brushes and textures that you can create in Photoshop makes for some really beautiful and complex paintings.

I like large canvasses, that's why I like Murals a lot and also making big art pieces out of walls and other wide structures that can be seen afar off is so awesome and cool.

I admire paintings and murals as well. I tried doing them but I guess my skills are not on that field. I was more on just making doodling a piece of my own art. I was never really good in combining colors so it makes me feel awe seeing how neatly these painters put colors together and look so well. As for the murals, I think it is hard to make such big artwork because you need to be able to draw/ paint them in the right proportion.

I like large paintings too. Whenever I go to an art museum that’s what I like looking at the most. I also like digital arts that you can typically find at DeviantArt. The people there are very creative and I am amazed at the things they come up with.

I like graffiti art, I think it's fun and colorful, and I do commend graffiti artists because most of them have no formal art training, but still, they could make such awesome and wonderful designs. These artists paints free hand with spray paints and most without any sketches but designs that are committed to memory. You need alot of talent and skill to be a graffiti artist.

That's an interesting feature about graffiti artists. They seem to have good long-term memory. They're practically capable of memorizing stuff. They're also very creative.

Family portrait paintings always catches my curiosity, more so if it has a lot of family members in it, the more people in it, the more curious it gets.

I think the historic element plays a huge role in this. Family portraits often show some obvious or hidden story behind the members of the bloodline. It makes me think of those conspiracy movies. Though, the history can also be sweet and nostalgic instead of suspenseful.

I think I'd like to have a miniature piece of art. I like small things and I enjoy my self from seeing cute things as well just like miniature. It brings me not only happiness but also a feeling of satisfaction that even in a miniature like funko pop collection is I can say that I am more than happy to start my day with a smile on my face and a motivation to work hard so that I can add more funko pop in my collection.

I would pick Infographics as an art form that I like. It's an art form which encompasses different art forms, it's a combination or collaboration of a variety of modes of expression.

I love paintings. They are full of mystery and emotions. I don't really paint but I find it very interesting. For me, paintings are reflections of someone's perspective. Visiting art gallery is like a therapy, You get to see the best in contemporary art. It can also boost your creativity. If you appreciate paintings, you allow yourself to be part of the magical world which is art.

I always thought Ghost in a Shell was a great anime movie. Too bad the Live Action was such a bummer. This is what happens when Hollywood white washes everything. Still the anime was great! What Art form do you like most?

I prefere sculpture as a for of art. It capture life in three dimensions and, with good skills, can look like a masterpiece from every angle. The creating aerial and soft forms out of stone and metal always fascinated me.

I appreciate more the sculptures because it creates the image into a real life form. It also gives dimension to the image they gives more texture and visibility. It also requires a lot more effort because it needs strength and endurance to create a single sculpture. It is like giving life to an artwork that is used to be in paper.

I came across this art in Youtube. It called food art wherein you made an art using food. The videos that I actually saw uses fruits and vegetables it is very beautiful. It maybe looked easy but when I tried it is very hard to do. This art made the food more appetizing and appealing.

Cinematography is the art form that appeals to me the most. Don't get me wrong. I like still pictures and paintings too but with video, you can tell a story better. There are so many aspects which you could consider in cinematography. The framing, the speed, the music, the subject, the background etc. Youtube videos are getting more and more cinematographic with people putting an emphasis on story telling.

I have tried painting in murals as well as in big canvas but it would be nice if I used oil paint in big canvasses compared to other medium such as acrylic. Acrylic is nice tho but what I hate about it sometimes, its easy to dry that I cannot blend smoothly those colors. When it comes to mural, I think most likely they used latex first before putting some acrylic medium. I like painting in illustration boards but I forgot the name of that board. It's kinda pricey for me but I like how it keeps the effect of the paint. It doesn't easily entirely get wet like a normal card board.

If enough people believe something is art, then it's art. This can change. And it can be manipulated.So if you give colors, a linen canvas and a paintbrush to a 2-year-old and ask him to paint "something colorful" then it's usually just a kiddie-picture.
If you secretly put that picture on a wall in a modern-arts museum and put a sign next to it that says "Whirling colors; piece 3 of series 7", people will stop in front of it and believe it is some piece of modern, abstract creative expressionism

I always seem to end up with the Impressionists. Even if I am editing a photo I cannot resist the style. If I paint, I paint in that style, not that I can paint, but I just love the style.

I go for mural painting, I have seen that artwork and how they do it. In schools they have this mural painting contest, students are very imaginative, from scratch to finish you will see how creative they are. I what i have observe mural paintings also seen at elementary and secondary school gate walls. Newly discovered painters are usually from grade school ages. You will see huge master piece of mural painting in some catholic churches, upon entering, could bring you to a peaceful place.

I actually don't mind what form of art there is. As long as I see an artwork that's very detailed and colored as it is meabt to be, I will stop by and Marvel at it. I am a person who loves to appreciate the skills of artists who are very clear of what they want to express and exhibit. On the other hand, I am a person who doesn't like abstract paintings as I am too lazy to figure out what the artist feels, and that kind of artwork doesn't put my mind to ease. I guess it's psychological factor, or I am really just lazy.

The canvas is still the best for me. I always find the kind of painting that is the most fascinating as the acrylic painting. It kind of adds another dimension for me. The fact that it dries so fast is another element for me that makes the whole process much harder than the other kinds of painting.

I love Panorama. It is great for family occasions or for group photographs. Also, it is great for taking videos. When you are out in the wild taking photographs of beautiful waterfalls, forests, it is great to use Panorama view for greater visibility. No other art form provides you the wider form of visibility.

What Art form do you like most: For me I like the most the Panorama kind of art because observing this kind of art it always reminds and inspire me that there is no limitation of your imagination or dream to be. In which you can see the whole things you need to.
