Inspiration – A peep into the artists mind

Friday, February 1st, 2008

Renoir’s painting - Springtime (in Chatou)Paintings give an insight into the artists’ character and thoughts. Some creators are inspired by beauty of wilderness, others by splendour, an abundance of colours, or by stark reality of pain, hunger and misery. Whatever the artists inspiration to create his paintings he finally gives something to the audience that holds them spell bound by what they see on the canvas.

An artist has a visualisation that is like a third eye for him that gives an ingenious depiction of what he perceives and this is what he portrays to the observer by way of his creativity. Landscaping paintings which might be of astonishing locations or harsh reality come alive with the artists view of what lies before him. It is the artist’s perception that he lays before the observer. The viewer is transported into a dream world where he can loose himself to his fantasies and forget about his own humble dwellings. He travels on wings to distant lands and places of untold beauty and with a little imagination can weave a tale of visions and be in a trance until he awakens when he wishes to awaken and not before that.

The artist transports the viewer

Landscape oil painting MonetDistant lands and spots of scenic beauty which it may not be possible to visit are brought within easy access. Creativity conveys much more than what meets the eye to the viewer and brings alive hidden splendour and mysticism. Rocks and stones and twigs and branches come alive under the artists deft strokes and are transformed into a beautiful landscape.

To a lay person what he sees before him may not inspire him to create something wonderful which he could present to the world as a work of art. The sunset or sunrise, a moon behind dark cloud, water rippling down a cliff or a barren stretch of land is transmitted with a mesmerising effect by a landscape artist in his paintings. The landscape artist brings beauty and a mesmerising effect into the most unassuming and dull scenery. What could not be perceived by the onlooker is drawn to the fore by the artists’ viewpoint and submitted in its fascinating form to the viewer.

Nature is the art of God

Beautiful paintingSimple tools like a canvas with sketch pens, water colours, oil paints, an easel and several brushes make a scene come alive. There is depth and distance portrayed on a piece of canvas, bringing it all into one’s view and within arms reach. This beauty can be brought back home to be put up on your wall and within your reach at all times; to perceive and wonder at and to own as your own. Your own private heaven to dwell in whenever you want and to visit whenever you prefer to get lost in dream land. As Dante Alighieri quoted ‘Nature is the art of God.’

Some of the artists who made a canvas come alive are Aert van der Neer a Dutch painter, Pierre Patel a painter of French origin, Salvador Rosa and Italian and Gaspard Dughet a Dutchman to name a few.
