|ART GENRES - RESOURCES FOR ARTISTS |
I have a number of websites devoted to different art genres. I've been developing them as I've undertaken projects and developed more knowledge about different aspects of art
My idea was to have one bookmark where I could go to find a reference or resources on a specific topic. They've helped me a great deal and I'm happy to share them with you.
Topics and subject matter covered include:
- Botanical Art
- Flowers, Plants and Gardens unpublished and in transition to another site
- Landscape Art
- Miniature Art unpublished and in transition to another site
- Portraiture unpublished and in transition to another site
- Still Life unpublished and in transition to another site
- Wildlife and Animal Art unpublished and in transition to another site
|Note: I've used article websites in the past to create these compendium websites as they have provided a very useful and free framework of modules for sites of this type. |
However I am now transferring information over to new websites
All links to books include an Amazon affiliate link via HubPages or my own personal account. If you buy a book as a result of clicking on one of these links I will earn a very small sum. (Income earned in this way helps me finance my new information websites and the purchase of new books).
|BOTANICAL ART||I've been interested in botanical art for a very long time and regularly review botanical art exhibitions and interview botanical artists who have won gold medals with the Royal Horticultural Society. I have also exhibited on a regular basis with the Society of Botanical Artists (until my cataracts put paid to making art! ) Following surgery and new eyes I'm hoping to be producing even more botanical art in the years to come!|
